Toronto Raptors Lose Sharpshooter Matt Thomas for Four Weeks
The Toronto Raptors continue to play undermanned.
Still about a week from seeing the potential returns of Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka, the Raptors were dealt with yet another blow to their rotation. Sharpshooting rookie Matt Thomas was diagnosed with a broken finger and will likely be out for the next four weeks according to head coach Nick Nurse.
Thomas was unavailable in the Raptors 101-96 victory over the Sixers last night.

The injury occurred during last Saturday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks.
The 25-year old shooting guard is averaging 4.8 points through 12 games this season, but ranks among the league’s best perimeter shooters, shooting at a near 54-percent clip.
As the injury total mounts, the Raptors continue to maintain the status quo and have improved to 12-4 on the season. They will take on the New York Knicks at home on Wednesday night.
