Vasquez (knee) will be available to play Saturday against the Jazz.

A right knee contusion threatened to keep Vasquez off the floor Saturday, but coach Dwane Casey said the 27-year-old will be a go. Vasquez is shooting just 32.9 percent from the field so far this season, with averages of 8.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 19 minutes.

Vasquez (knee contusion) is a game-time decision for Saturday's game against Utah, TSN 1050's Josh Lewenberg reports.

He has a right knee contusion, and if he cannot play, Kyle Lowry will see a bump in playing time as the starter with Lou Williams serving as the backup point guard.

Vasquez scored 10 points (4-12 FG, 1-7 3P, 1-1 FT) with four assists and three rebounds in 18 minutes off the bench Tuesday.

He's now scored in double digits in three of the Raptors' four games, and while his minutes and fantasy value are limited by playing behind Kyle Lowry, Vasquez remains an integral part of the club's second unit.

Vasquez will sit out Friday's game as a precaution after he was struck in the head by a ball at shootaround.

This is something to keep an eye on, as a ball to the head wouldn't typically result in any kind of lingering effects. Consider him day-to-day.

Vasquez scored nine points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3P, 2-2 FT) with eight assists and four rebounds in 23 minutes off the bench during the Raptors' preseason opener on Sunday.

His shot was a little rusty, but otherwise Vasquez had a strong night as the Raptors downed the Kings. He'll be the anchor of the club's second unit, and with Louis Williams and James Johnson replacing John Salmons and Steve Novak, Vasquez should have a more dangerous mix of weapons to distribute to this season.

Greivis Vasquez has reached an agreement to re-sign with the Raptors for $13 million over two years.

He was a restricted free agent, but there was never really a doubt he'd be coming back, especially after the Raptors traded away Steve Novak. Vasquez gets a hefty raise here from just $2.1 million last year, so the Raptors may have went a bit over market value for a backup point guard. They also dropped $48 million over four years for their starting Kyle Lowry. GV won't have much fantasy value as a backup. The Raptors also have brought in Lou Williams. Guess what their favorite position is this offseason.

The Toronto Raptors are working towards completing a deal with unrestricted free agent Greivis Vasquez.

The deal is close to being finalized and could be completed as soon as Thursday, according to reports. Vasquez told media outlets in Venezuela that he is considering the $3.1 million qualifying offer from the Raptors, which would make him an unrestricted free agent again next summer. Vasquez still wants to sign somewhere where he can become a starter, so a one-year deal with Toronto makes sense since they just signed Kyle Lowry to a long-term contract.

Restricted free agent Greivis Vasquez is getting interest from the Bucks.

The Raptors unloaded the last two years of Steve Novak's deal on Friday, so they have enough room to make a solid offer to Vasquez. It sounds like he might get a bigger offer than he probably should with the Raptors, but it's possible the Bucks pay even more. He would certainly have more fantasy value on the Bucks.

The Raptors made a qualifying offer to Greivis Vasquez to make him a free agent.

This is just a formality since the qualifying offer was just over $3 million. Vasquez will likely fetch a deal much larger than that from other teams, but the Raptors can match it. Kyle Lowry is still likely going to be back with the Raptors, despite some erroneous reports earlier this week.
