Toronto Raptors guard Will Barton is doubtful for Tuesday’s home game against the Miami Heat.
Barton left Sunday’s 114-104 win over the Washington Wizards with a sprained ankle and was absent from practice on Monday.
“I don’t think it’s too bad,” Raptors coach Nick Nurse told reporters after practice. “I think he was out a little sore and stiff today but shouldn’t be a long-term thing.”
The 32-year-old Barton has averaged 2.8 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists over 12 games with the Raptors since signing as a free agent in late February.
Gary Trent Jr., who has missed the past three games due to a sore elbow, was limited in practice and remains questionable.
The 24-year-old guard is averaging 17.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists this season.
Toronto (37-38) is holding on to ninth place in the Eastern Conference with seven games remaining in the regular season.
