Raptors’ VanVleet, Koloko, Achiuwa questionable vs. Grizzlies

Toronto Raptors star point guard Fred VanVleet did not practice because of back spasms on Wednesday, one day after he exited a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers in the third quarter because of lower back stiffness.

VanVleet is listed as questionable for Thursday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

An all-star last season, VanVleet is averaging 18.5 points, 6.1 assists and 3.9 rebounds this season.
