Raptors guard Patrick McCaw will leave the NBA bubble in Orlando to seek treatment for the reoccurrence of a benign mass on his left knee, according to a statement released by the team.

The fourth-year guard experienced discomfort when the Raptors resumed action in July and had not played in any of Toronto's three seeding games.

McCaw will visit the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York to determine the best course of action, where he was previously treated for the same condition this past November. There is currently no clarity on when he'll be able to return.

Per league rules, the Raptors will not be able to replace McCaw's spot on the roster, which will remain at 16 players.

McCaw was averaging 4.1 points, 2.1 assists and 1.1 steals over 24.5 minutes per game before the season was suspended in March due to Covid-19.
