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.
