Toronto Raptors guard Norman Powell out indefinitely with fractured finger

The injury bug strikes again.

The Toronto Raptors announced on Saturday that Norman Powell sustained a fracture to the fourth metacarpal of his left hand in the team's win over the Detroit Pistons.

Powell will be out indefinitely.

"During the fourth quarter of Toronto's win at Detroit on Friday, Norman Powell sustained a fracture to the fourth metacarpal of his left hand," the Raptors tweeted. "He will be listed as out indefinitely, and he will be reassessed as appropriate."

Powell missed 11 games between the end of December and the start of January with a subluxation of the left shoulder. He's been playing some of the best basketball of his career since returning, posting 17.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists on 50.7 percent shooting from the field and 42.6 percent shooting from 3-point range.

On the season, Powell is averaging a career-best 15.3 points per game. He's been Toronto's fifth-leading scorer.

According to Spotrac, the Raptors have missed 163 games to injury this season. Only the Golden State Warriors, Washington Wizards, Portland Trail Blazers and Detroit Pistons have missed more.
