Carter activated from injured list before Toronto win

Miami, FL (Sports Network) – Toronto All-Star swingman Vince Carter was
activated from the injured list prior to Tuesday night’s home game against
Miami, and scored a game-high 27 points as the Raptors beat the Heat, 89-86.

Carter also dished out eight assists in 41 minutes, helping Toronto snap a
nine-game losing streak.

Carter had been on the IL since February 20, missing six games with a moderate
left ankle sprain. He suffered the injury during a contest against San Antonio
on February 18 when he landed awkwardly after a jump shot.

In 50 games this season, Carter is averaging a team-high 21.2 points to go
along with 4.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists per contest.

Meanwhile, forward Michael Bradley was placed on the injured list with right
knee tendinosis.
