Raptors guard Norman Powell leaves game with sprained left ankle staff and Twitter reports

Toronto’s injury woes continued Monday in Utah, where guard Norman Powell was helped off the court with a sprained left ankle and did not return.

Powell was injured in a collision with teammate OG Anunoby early in the first quarter.

Powell, having already missed stretches of nine and 11 games with previous injuries, had been in the midst of a scorching streak, averaging 28 points in five outings since returning from his most recent absence. He was just named Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

Powell is averaging a career-high 16.8 points in 43 appearances, roughly double his previous best average.
