Likely won't have offseason surgery
VanVleet suffered a bruised knee just before the All-Star break and injured his hip during Game 4 of the opening-round matchup with the 76ers, which ultimately sidelined him for the Raptors' final two games of the 2021-22 campaign. However, according to the point guard, neither injury is expected to limit his summer in any way, suggesting he won't need offseason surgery. VanVleet finished his sixth season in the NBA with averages of 20.3 points, 6.7 assists and 4.4 rebounds in 37.9 minutes per game -- all career highs.

Drops 19 in season-ending loss
The fourth-year guard bounced back from an illness that limited him in the first two games of the series, averaging 16.8 points, 2.4 boards, 2.2 threes, 2.1 assists and 1.7 steals over the final four contests against Philadelphia. Trent has become an effective backcourt complement to the Raptors' parade of long, athletic forwards, and next season he'll look to top the career-high 18.3 points and 3.0 three-pointers he recorded in 2021-22.

Strong showing in Game 6
It was another big performance by Siakam as he tried to keep the Raptors' season alive, but the team's defense couldn't slow down the Sixers. The 28-year-old averaged 22.8 points, 7.2 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks over six games in the first round, and he'll remain a key piece for the Raptors next season as they look to return to the top of the Eastern Conference.
