Jordan McRae exits Wizards vs. Raptors with sprained left ankle


Just when the Wizards were getting healthy again, they may have suffered a tough blow to their second unit against the Raptors Friday night.

At the start of the second quarter in Toronto, McRae suffered a left ankle injury after accidentally stepping on Terence Davis' foot. The team ruled it as an ankle sprain and McRae did not return to the game. 

He was writhing in pain on the floor as teammates surrounded him and helped him off the floor. As he exited the game to the locker room, McRae was not able to put any weight on his left leg. 

McRae had stepped up as one of Washington's primary scorers off the bench and a very good back-up to Bradley Beal at the off-guard spot. Over the last 10 games, McRae was averaging 19.9 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists on 45 percent shooting from beyond the arc. 

We don't know yet whether McRae will miss any time beyond Friday, but if he does the Wizards will have to rely more on Davis Bertans and Ish Smith for offense in the second unit.
