Toronto Raptors

Fred VanVleet, Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol to travel with Toronto Raptors on upcoming road trip, says Nick Nurse

Maybe Fred VanVleet and Serge Ibaka won't miss much time after all.

Following Friday's loss to the Charlotte Hornets, Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said all of Toronto's injured players will travel with the team on its upcoming five-game road trip, per Josh Lewenberg of TSN.

That includes VanVleet (shoulder) and Ibaka (knee), both of whom were a late scratch against the Hornets, as well as Marc Gasol, who has been sidelined since Jan. 30 with a hamstring injury.

The hope is that they'll each return at some point during the trip.

Toronto's road trip will begin on Sunday, when it takes on the Denver Nuggets. The Raptors will then travel to Phoenix on March 3, followed by Golden State on March 5, Sacramento on March 8 and Utah on March 9.

The Raptors return to Toronto on March 14, when they take on the Detroit Pistons for the fourth and final time this season.

With a 19-8 record away from the Scotiabank Arena this season, the Raptors have the third-best road record in the league. Only the Milwaukee Bucks (24-5) and Los Angeles Lakers (24-5) have been better on the road.
