Toronto’s Rose activated from injured list

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) – The Toronto Raptors activated swingman Jalen
Rose from the injured list on Sunday.

Rose has missed 16 games since he fractured his left hand in a Toronto victory
at Golden State on February 8. The 10-year veteran underwent surgery on
February 10 and was immediately placed on the IL.

Rose, who had played in 286 consecutive games prior to the injury, is
averaging 14.4 points and 4.7 assists in 49 games this season. He was acquired
from Chicago in a six-player trade on December 1.

To make room on the roster, the Raptors placed center Robert Archibald on the
injured list with lower back problems. In 25 games this season, Archibald is
averaging 1.2 points and 1.7 rebounds.
