Vasquez was with the team on its recent trip to Memphis but is not close yet to returning to the court. No timetable has been set for his return. “I’m better, mentally,” Vasquez said. “I was beat up mentally because I wanted to really perform and do well for the team. I didn’t play the way I wanted to, but I needed to get healthy. “I know I’m going to come back before the season is over. Hopefully we rack up a few wins and I can help. “Everything happens for a reason, I believe. I’m going to come back stronger and better and we’ll see what happens. I still believe in our team and what we have.”

Q: Will Vasquez be back this season (following right ankle surgery) and in hindsight was it a gamble to give up a 2017 lottery protected first-round pick in the trade for him? John Hammond: There is no timetable. We’re hopeful that he can (return). I think he’s going to do everything that he can to get himself back on the floor. I think he wanted to play; he wanted to be on the floor. But at the end of the day he had to have the surgery. It’s a part of business. Look, he played 82 games last year, almost 2,000 minutes and was a great contributor for that Toronto organization. We thought he could play well for us.
