Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet has been listed as questionable with a left hip flexor strain ahead of Monday night's Game 5 against the Philadelphia 76ers.

VanVleet left Game 4 in the second quarter, ripping his jersey in frustration, and did not return. The guard averaged 13.8 points, 6.3 assists and three rebounds per game in Toronto's first round playoff series.

Joel Embiid will be available for Game 5 despite torn ligaments in his right thumb. The Sixers centre will undergo surgery in the offseason.
