Terrence Ross checked out early in the fourth quarter of the Toronto Raptors’ game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday due to a sore left wrist. He is not expected to return, per @RaptorsMR.
Prior to leaving, Ross was just 2-of-8 from the floor but had four steals and, well, he did this:
It’s unclear if he injured the wrist on that dunk (his shot has been a little off of late). It would be the most Ross thing ever to turn the ball over, steal it back, do a 360, and hurt himself on the play. Just a peak Ross sequence, if that is, in fact, what happened.
Ross said he hurt wrist on the dunk but is fine.

Note: The original post said Ross was headed for X-rays, as was reported on the broadcast. The Raptors later clarified that Ross did not receive X-rays.
Norman Powell took Ross’ place on the court and figures to see the bulk of Ross’ minutes if he misses time. Powell continues to be a wonderful luxury, a break-glass-in-case-of-emergency option who would be seeing regular, non-injury related time in many rotations around the league. The Raptors would miss Ross’ shooting, but Powell’s a pretty damn good insurance policy.
