The Toronto Raptors announced Wednesday that Norman Powell is out indefinitely with a subluxation of the left shoulder. There is no timetable for his return to basketball activity. Powell’s status will be updated as appropriate.
The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski:
Toronto Raptors guard Norman Powell is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks with his left shoulder subluxation, league source tells ESPN.

A subluxation is a partial dislocation.
Powell, 25, has appeared in all 11 of the Raptors’ games this season, starting in two of them. He is averaging five points and two rebounds in 14.9 minutes per game and shooting 47.6 percent from the field and 40.9 percent from 3-point range. Both of those shooting percentages are career-highs.
The Raptors have gotten off to a terrific start to the 2018-19 season; they’re currently 10-1.
