TORONTO (AP) _ Toronto Raptors center Mamadou N'diaye will be sidelined for a month with a stress fracture in his right heel.
N'diaye, who missed the final 26 games last season with the same injury, averaged 5.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in six games this season.
The injury-plagued Raptors are already missing star Vince Carter (strained left quadriceps tendon) and reserves Lamond Murray (torn ligament in right foot), Eric Montross (fractured left foot) and Nate Huffman (right knee surgery).
Antonio Davis, who missed four games with a strained rib, and Jelani McCoy, who missed two games with a strained back, were expected to return to the lineup Friday night against the Denver Nuggets.
