Raptors guard Norman Powell leaves game with sprained left ankle

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.
