Raptors’ Marc Gasol gets standing ovation in first home game in Toronto

VanVleet has a partially torn ligament in the thumb and will wear a splint for approximately three weeks before it is reevaluated.

Calderon, who played the first seven-and-a-half seasons of his National Basketball Association career with the Raptors, now plays for the Detroit Pistons.

The injury occurred during the second quarter of Saturday's win in NY against the Knicks.

More than a decade into his National Basketball Association career, Gasol was traded for the first time when the Raptors acquired him in a blockbuster deal at Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline.

He finished with seven points, six rebounds, two steals, a block and an assist in 19 minutes of action.

Arguably the strangest and most hilarious routine in the Association, the Toronto point guard's teammates graciously hit the floor and partake in various workout-mimicking antics while Lowry frees them one-by-one with the power of a theatrical handshake.

Now an National Basketball Association veteran, the Asian-American first made headlines when he burst onto the scene in 2011-12 with the New York Knicks, inspiring a global craze known as 'Linsanity.' The craze was so significant that when he hit a game-winning shot against the Raptors in 2012, it drew a huge cheer - in Toronto. "We're going to get there", Leonard added. "And what you're playing for, it's exciting as well".

"They told me all great things about the organization and the city, so I couldn't be more excited about it", Gasol said.

For the first time in his career, Gasol is coming off the bench for a Raptors team that's stacked with talent.

Based on his performance, it didn't appear to concern him very much at all.

Marc worked his way into a franchise player, earning three all-star nominations and winning the NBA's defensive player of the year award in 2013. But the Grizzlies advanced past the first round of the post-season just three times in the past decade, and didn't make the playoffs at all previous year.
