Raptors star Scottie Barnes out indefinitely with broken hand in loss to Warriors

The Warriors surged ahead in the second half to grab a 120-105 win over the Raptors in Toronto

The Toronto Raptors will be without Scottie Barnes for the foreseeable future.

Barnes broke his left hand in the Raptors’ 120-105 loss to the Golden State Warriors at Scotiabank Arena on Friday night, the team announced. More specifically, Barnes fractured the third metacarpal bone in his left hand.

It's unclear how long Barnes will be sidelined, or if he will need surgery.

Barnes appeared to break the bone in his left hand late in the second quarter after it was kicked by teammate Immanuel Quickley as they tried to defend a shot at the rim. Barnes jumped up and smacked his right hand on the rim right after he was kicked, but then immediately grabbed for his left hand and screamed out in clear pain as he landed back on the court.

He was subbed out of the game just before halftime, and did not return.

Barnes finished with 10 points and six assists in 16 minutes in the loss.

Barnes entered Friday night’s game averaging a career-high 20 points, 8.3 rebounds and 6.1 assists this season, his third in the league. The 22-year-old, who the Raptors took with the No. 4 overall pick in 2021, earned his first All-Star nod this season, too.

Though the Raptors took a three-point lead into the break, the Warriors held Toronto to just 19 points in the third quarter before surging ahead to grab the 15-point win late. Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 25 points while shooting 7-of-15 from the 3-point line, and Jonathan Kuminga added 24 points. The Warriors, now 32-27 on the season, have won three straight and five of six coming out of the All-Star break.

R.J. Barrett led Toronto with 23 points while shooting 9-of-16 from the field. Kelly Olynyk, who started the second half in place of Barnes, finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Quickley added 12 points and 11 assists.
