Linsanity is coming to Canada.

The Hawks tried to deal Lin ahead of the February 3 trade deadline but could not find a match in part due to the 30-year-old's $12.5 million salary.

VanVleet had been enjoying a career season, averaging 10.5 points, 2.7 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game before the injury.

The three week minimum timeline likely sidelines him for the entirety of the six-game homestand for the Raptors that begins Monday night against Brooklyn.

What does Jeremy Lin bring to the Toronto Raptors? They signed forwards Chris Boucher and Malcolm Miller on Sunday to help fill the void, but Lin is a more significant addition.

He suffered the injury in the second quarter of Saturday's win in NY.

Lin gives the Raptors obvious depth at both guard spots, and will likely - once he clears waivers and joins Toronto - spend time backing up point guard Kyle Lowry and shooting guard Danny Green.

Lin averaged 14.6 points in 35 games for the Knicks that season, a huge uptick from his rookie season with the Golden State Warriors when he was used sparingly.
