Jonas Valanciunas has suffered a hand injury and is out for the duration of Monday’s game between the Toronto Raptors and Chicago Bulls.
Sportsnet’s Michael Grange is reporting that although he’s leaving the game, X-rays on his left hand are negative.
Valancuinas out for the night; X-rays on his left-hand (same hand that cost him 17 games earlier this year) were negative, which is good.

In just under 10 minutes of action, the Lithuanian centre had posted eight points on 3-for-3 shooting with two rebounds. Earlier this season, a hand injury had him on the shelf for 17 games.
With Valanciunas out, Bismack Biyombo is expected to log heavy minutes for the Raptors.
