Toronto Raptors’ forward Chris Boucher has suffered an MCL sprain in his left knee, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The injury occurred early in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets when Brooklyn’s Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot came down hard on Boucher’s left ankle while fighting for a rebound, sending Boucher to the floor in obvious pain.

The good news is that the tests revealed no major injury in Boucher’s knee, which means he could be able to return later this season. The Raptors are going to need him as they gear up for one final playoff push.

Boucher is having a career season in his third with the Raptors, averaging career-highs in points (13.8), rebounds (6.7), assists (1.1), blocks (1.9), and three-point percentage (38.9 on 3.8 attempts). Boucher has also been the most durable Raptor, playing in all 59 games so far this season.
