Jonas Valanciunas is getting close to being healthy enough to play.

Valanciunas has a calf injury.

“He’s close, he went this morning, still no contact, but he’s going hard, he’s going full bore, so he’s getting closer,” Dwane Casey said.

Valancinuas could make his debut "any time this week" but the Raptors will be cautious with him.

“This kid is going to be here a long time so we’re going to make sure he’s ready to go.”

Valanciunas is picking up the terminology in practice.
