Raptors' Patrick McCaw to miss multiple weeks after knee surgery
Swingman had benign mass removed, will be re-evaluated in a month
Toronto Raptors swingman Patrick McCaw underwent arthroscopic left knee surgery Wednesday and will be out of the lineup indefinitely.
McCaw had a benign mass on the back of the knee removed by Dr. Riley Williams at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, the Raptors said in a statement.
The 24-year-old St. Louis native will be re-evaluated in four weeks.
The Raptors play the visiting Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night. McCaw will not travel with the team on its upcoming five-game West Coast road trip.
McCaw played a limited role off the bench with Toronto last season after signing with the Raptors in January. He signed a US$8-million, two-year contract with the Raptors last July.
McCaw won NBA championships with Golden State over his first two NBA seasons before winning a third title with Toronto last spring.
