Jonas Valanciunas (dislocated thumb) underwent surgery on his thumb and will be in a cast for four weeks before being reevaluated.
Surgery is typically the worst-case scenario for dislocations, so this is unfortunate for the big man. In his absence, Serge Ibaka and Pascal Siakam should see an uptick in minutes. Greg Monroe will likely re-emerge from the bench into some rotation minutes. OG Anunoby and Kawhi Leonard could also see more time at the four as the Raptors go small.
