The Toronto Raptors will be without forward Precious Achiuwa indefinitely after he suffered partially torn ligaments in his foot and a sprained ankle. His injury occurred Wednesday night in the team’s 116-109 victory over the Houston Rockets. Achiuwa will wear a walking boot for the next ten days and then he will be re-evaluated at a later date. He is a key member of the team’s bench rotation and the team will miss his production in the time that he misses. In the team’s 12 games, he averaged just over 20 minutes per game.
The Raptors say Precious Achiuwa is out indefinitely with partial tears of ligaments in his right ankle. Already without Pascal Siakam, Toronto is now down another rangy forward.

So far this season with the Toronto Raptors, Precious Achiuwa is averaging 8.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game. He has paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 39.1 percent and a three-point percentage of 17.9 percent. Since acquiring Achiuwa the Raptors were hoping for more production from him and it appeared that they were finally getting it. Hopefully, this injury does not slow him down too much this season and his recovery goes smoothly. We here at Def Pen Sports hope to see a quick recovery and return to the basketball court for Achiuwa.
