TORONTO -- Raptors forward Chris Bosh is expected to miss the start of training camp because of a strained left hamstring.
The team made the announcement on Friday.
The four-time All-Star first felt soreness during a training session at home in Dallas last week. The pain returned during a workout in Toronto on Wednesday.
The Raptors are scheduled to open their five-day training camp Tuesday in Ottawa. They begin exhibition play Oct. 6 against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Bosh averaged a career-high 22.7 points and 10.0 rebounds last year. The six-year veteran will be a free agent at the end of the season.
He will be reevaluated when the team returns to Toronto after the camp.
