Aaron Gray Medical Update
The Toronto Raptors announced Friday centre Aaron Gray is currently undergoing further monitoring and testing of his cardiac status. Gray has experienced episodes of a rapid heart rate.
In consultation with Dr. Allan Schwartz, NBA League cardiologist, the club has made the decision to withhold Gray from game action at this time. He will, however, continue to participate in full contact practices.
Gray, a four-year NBA veteran, was signed December 11 as a free-agent. He appeared in two preseason games, totaling nine rebounds in 32 minutes.
The Raptors face the Mavericks in Dallas tonight. Game time is 8:30 p.m. ET. (TSN/Sportsnet 590 The FAN).
