Jonas Valanciunas has reportedly progressed from "out" to "doubtful" to "game-time decision" for the Toronto Raptors ahead of Game 4 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Coming off a critical Game 3 win in Toronto, that's welcome news for the Raptors, who are looking to even their series at home Monday night.

Valanciunas hasn't played since spraining his ankle against the Miami Heat on May 7.
The 23-year-old big man had excelled prior to his injury, averaging 15 points and 12.1 rebounds over 10 games.
He'd also be welcome back because the team's Game 3 hero -- Bismack Biyombo -- is one flagrant foul away from a one-game suspension.

As for the Cavs, they'll have to do without one of their own. Dahntay Jones will serve a one-game suspension for hitting Biyombo below the belt in the closing seconds of Game 3.
