Fred VanVleet injury update: Raptors guard cleared for Game 5 of NBA Finals

Fred VanVleet is ready to make his return, but he’ll look a little different when he does.

The Raptors guard has been cleared for Monday’s Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Warriors but will wear a mouthpiece when he takes the court.

“I’m a gambler. I gambled and sometimes it comes back to bite you in the butt,” VanVleet said following Sunday’s practice, via The Canadian Press. “All kids out there, wear mouthpieces. It was a weird play and I took an unfortunate shot. Now I will be wearing a mouthpiece for as long as I can manage it.

“I’ll probably throw it (away) at some point, but I’m going to try.”
