Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry was forced to leave team’s Game 4 victory Brooklyn Nets with a left foot injury.

Head coach Nick Nurse said after the game that Lowry will get an MRI done on the arch of his foot.

Lowry left the Field House where the Raptors were playing the Nets in order to undergo diagnostic imaging elsewhere on the NBA campus.

Lowry suffered the injury after getting tangled up with Nets guard Chris Chiozza while dribbling up the floor late in the first quarter. The Raptors guard was seen limping immediately after the collision and headed to the locker room.

Lowry has averaged 16 points, 8.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists this post-season prior to Friday’s game.

The Raptors will take on the Boston Celtics in the second round starting on Aug. 27.
