Report: Toronto Raptors big man Chris Boucher suffers sprained MCL, tests reveal 'no major injury'

Toronto Raptors big man Chris Boucher has a sprained MCL in his left knee, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Charania adds that tests revealed no major injury. Boucher's timetable for return will reportedly be based on his rehab process.

Boucher suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Toronto's win over the Brooklyn Nets on April 21. The Raptors announced at the time that he had a left knee sprain and wouldn't return to the game.

Boucher is in the midst of a breakout season, averaging career-highs of 13.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.9 blocks and 1.1 assists on 51.9 percent shooting from the field and 38.9 percent from 3-point range.

The Raptors have 13 games remaining in their season. At 25-34, they're currently half a game behind the Washington Wizards for the 10th seed in the Eastern Conference, putting them on the outside looking in on the Play-In Tournament.

The Raptors are back in action on Saturday, when they travel to New York to face the Knicks.
