The Toronto Raptors could have Fred VanVleet and Marc Gasol back in the lineup Sunday night when they visit the Sacramento Kings.
If the two return, it will only be the third game this season in which the Raptors have had their full roster in good health.
The Raptors earned a playoff spot with a 121-113 win over the Golden State Warriors on Thursday. The Kings, fighting for a playoff spot, welcomed center Richaun Holmes to the lineup Saturday night when they beat host Portland Trail Blazers 123-111.
Holmes had missed the previous 25 games with a tear in his right shoulder. He scored 10 points and caught eight rebounds in 19 minutes from the bank on Saturday. Bogdan Bogdanovic led the Kings to their first victory in Portland since 2012 with 27 points.
Holmes' return helped the Kings recover from a 125-108 home loss to the injured Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday.
In the first 37 games of the season, Holmes had an average of 13.1 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.4 blocked shots while shooting 66% on the field.
Meanwhile, the Raptors have played without Gasol for 27 games this season, 12 due to tension in the left hamstrings and the most recent 15 due to pain and tension in the same hamstrings.
VanVleet missed a total of 14 games: the last four with left shoulder pain and two periods of five games with tension in the right thigh and a bruise in the right knee.
The absence of Gasol was longer than expected. The nurse had indicated that Gasol could be back in the lineup after the star break.
Gasol is the result of an unusual double: winning the 2019 NBA Championship with Toronto and the World Basketball Championship with Spain.
The Raptors defeated the Kings 124-120 on November 6 in Toronto in the team's first meeting this season.
