Toronto Raptors point guard Fred VanVleet is doubtful for Game 4 against the Washington Wizards on Sunday.

VanVleet missed all of Games 1 and 3, and played just under three minutes in Game 2 due to a right shoulder injury suffered during the last game of the regular season.

The 24-year-old has been a key piece of Toronto’s impressive bench all season, a unit which hasn’t had as big an impact on the first-round series as had perhaps been expected to this point.

The Raptors hold a 2-1 series lead going into Game 4, with tip-off scheduled for 6 p.m ET.
