Toronto Raptors center Marc Gasol will miss a period of weeks with a left hamstring strain, league sources told ESPN. Gasol's rehabilitation program will dictate how soon he'll be able to return, but he's expected to be out of the lineup for the foreseeable future, sources said.
The Raptors, who host the Washington Wizards on Friday, announced that Gasol, forward Pascal Siakam and guard Norman Powell are all officially listed as "out indefinitely" with injuries suffered in the 112-99 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday. Siakam, the team's leading scorer at 25.1 points per game, sustained a stretched groin after an awkward landing with 6 minutes, 47 seconds left to play. Powell sustained a subluxation of the left shoulder in a collision with 3:17 to play.
Gasol has started all of Toronto's games this season but has been used in a reduced-minutes role. He's averaged 6.6 points and 6.6 rebounds in 28.2 minutes per game. Serge Ibaka and Chris Boucher are expected to take on increased center minutes during Gasol's absence.
Gasol, 34, was a key part of the Raptors' championship run last season, joining the team at the February trade deadline from Memphis. Gasol is a three-time All-Star and a 2015 first-team All-NBA player and NBA Defensive Player of the Year.
