Fred VanVleet (hip recovery) ruled out for Raptors against Nuggets

Toronto Raptors point guard Fred VanVleet (hip recovery) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Denver Nuggets.

What It Means:

The Raptors aren't even on a back-to-back in this one. DeAndre Bembry, Rodney Hood, and Malachi Flynn could all see more minutes in place of VanVleet. Kyle Lowry should also benefit.

numberFire’s models project Lowry for 34.6 FanDuel points versus the Nuggets and he has a salary of $6,400 on Thursday.
