Raptors’ Landry Fields out after elbow surgery; Alan Anderson out with foot injury

The Raptors are having some depth issues out on the perimeter. Actually, some is an understatement. More like buried under an avalanche.

First Kyle Lowry is out a couple weeks with a bone bruise in his foot.

Now we learn Wednesday was the day Landry Fields had elbow surgery and he is out indefinitely, as reported by Raptors play-by-play man Matt Devlin.

Fields started five games but had not been right, averaging just 2.4 points per game on 20.8 percent shooting. He will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks and a timetable for his return will be set then.

Usually a lot of his minutes would go to reserve swingman Alan Anderson — but he also is out for at least three weeks, Devlin tweets.

Yikes.

You’d xpect to see a lot more Linas Kleiza but he is out Thursday with a sore ankle. Next up is Dominic McGuire but he is out until Saturday due to a family issue.

Expect to see some Andrea Bargnani at the three. Maybe, finally, we will get to see some of rookie Terrence Ross because of this, too.
