Toronto Raptors centre Alex Len is expected to miss the team's Thursday night matchup against the Charlotte Hornets for personal reasons, according to the NBA's injury report.

Len has played sparingly of late as he has fallen down the team's depth chart at centre.

In seven games this season, the 27-year-old is averaging 2.3 points, 1.6 rebounds and 10.9 minutes per game.

The Raptors are looking to bounce back from a 1-3 record on their recent western junket, which left them at 2-8 on the season.
