The Toronto Raptors have been dealt another injury blow.

Reserve forward Patrick McCaw is out with a sprained thumb, the team announced Saturday.

McCaw, who suffered the injury in the first half of Thursday's win over the New York Knicks, will wear a splint for three weeks before being re-evaluated.

The three-year veteran joined the Raptors as a midseason free-agent acquisition, signing with the team on Jan. 10. In 26 games (one start), he is averaging 2.7 points and 1.7 rebounds while playing 13.2 minutes per game. McCaw scored a season-high 13 points in the Raptors two-point win over the Brooklyn Nets on Feb. 11.

As the postseason nears, Nick Nurse continues to try and round out the Raptors' rotation, but with McCaw sidelined for at least three weeks, he will likely miss Toronto's first playoff games, if not the entire first round.

Toronto is back in action Saturday night when it takes on the Chicago Bulls at the United Center. McCaw joins OG Anunoby and Kawhi Leonard as players that will be unavailable.
