Raptors' Chris Boucher to have MRI on knee sprain suffered vs. Nets

Chris Boucher was forced to leave the game for the Raptors after suffering a knee sprain while taking on the Nets.

Toronto Raptors centre Chris Boucher was forced to leave Wednesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets with a left knee sprain.

Boucher suffered the injury early in the fourth quarter when Brooklyn forward Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot landed on Boucher's foot while the two were competing for a rebound under the Raptors' net.

Boucher immediately fell to the floor in pain and had to be helped up before he hopped gingerly to the locker room. After the game, head coach Nick Nurse said Boucher will have an MRI on his knee to determine the full extent of the injury.

The 28-year-old Montreal native is in the midst of a career season, averaging 13.8 points and 6.7 rebounds in 58 games.
