What’s the buzz on Twitter?

So no big surprise that VanVleet is a no go for Game 5. Nurse said he’ll probably proceed much the way he did in the second half of Game 4. – 10:57 AM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Fred VanVleet is out vs. Sixers for Game 5 due to hip flexor strain. Told me there is no visible bruising or swelling, but sounded doubtful he would be ready for Game 6 Thurs. (if necessary). He said if Raptors come back he’s optimistic he could be ready for the second round. – 10:47 AM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
No Fred VanVleet tonight, Fred VanVleet says – 10:34 AM
