Carter out of lineup against New York

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) – Toronto Raptors forward Vince Carter was
not in uniform for the Raptors 90-79 loss against the New York Knicks on
Monday.

Carter was injured when he lost his balance during a dunk attempt in the first
quarter of last Thursday night’s overtime win against the New Orleans Hornets.

He limped to the locker room before the start of the second quarter and did
not return. It appeared Carter strained his right quadriceps and is listed as
day to day.

In 36 games prior to Thursday, Carter was averaging 21.8 points and 4.5
rebounds. The former Tar Heel also has received the most All-Star votes in the
Eastern Conference.

Toronto is currently in fifth place in the Central Division with a 20-19
record.
