CHICAGO (AP) Jonas Valanciunas is expected to return to the Toronto Raptors on Monday night after missing 17 games with a broken left hand.

Valanciunas was injured Nov. 20 against the Los Angeles Lakers. In 14 games, Valanciunas averaged 12.7 points and 9.3 rebounds. He leads Toronto with five double-doubles.

Coach Dwane Casey didn't say whether Valanciunas would return to the starting lineup. He added that Valanciunas would play in ''probably short stints'' against the Chicago Bulls.
