Fred VanVleet remains out of lineup for Raptors against Rockets
VanVleet will miss his second straight game for injury management purposes along with OG Anunoby, who is expected to return from a right quadriceps contusion Sunday against the New York Knicks.
Precious Achiuwa (right knee contusion) remains questionable while Yuta Watanabe (left quadriceps soreness) will make his return to the lineup.
Toronto is looking to give players extra rest with only two games left in the regular season.
VanVleet has been working his way back from a knee injury that has forced him to miss time this season.
The 28-year-old is averaging 20.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game and was named to his first NBA All-Star Game.
The Raptors (47-33) are currently fifth in the Eastern Conference and have already clinched a playoff spot.
