The Toronto Raptors announced today that forward Landry Fields has undergone wrist surgery and will be out of the lineup for three weeks. Fields has fallen down the depth chart over the last two months and doesn't see much action. He is averaging 2.4 points per game and 2.2 rebounds per game. He has played an average of 12 minutes per game this season.
Fields has been dealing with this wrist injury for about two years now and is hoping this surgery will help them get back to 100%. It has affected his shooting ability and has been a lingering problem for too long.
Fields is set to make $6.25 million next season and could be on the move either before the trade deadline or in the offseason if Raptors General Manager Masai Ujiri can find someone to take on his contract. He becomes a free agent at the end of the 2014-2015 season.
