An injury-riddled Toronto Raptors team got more bad news on Thursday with a report that starting center Marc Gasol will miss significant time with a hamstring injury.
Shooting guard Norman Powell also suffered a shoulder injury during that game. His long-term status remains unclear.
Another injury in Toronto
The reigning champion Raptors have dealt with injuries to several key players this season with Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet and Serge Ibaka among rotation players to miss significant playing time.
With the Gasol injury, Ibaka will likely see an increased role after recently returning from an ankle injury.
Despite the injuries and the offseason departure of Kawhi Leonard, the Raptors have remained competitive with a 19-8 start thanks in part to the emergence of Pascal Siakam, who continues to elevate his game after his breakout campaign last season.
