Toronto’s Rose activated from injured list
Toronto, ON (Sports Network) – The Toronto Raptors activated swingman Jalen
Rose from the injured list for Sunday’s game against Atlanta.
Rose was in the starting lineup for the Raptors 101-84 victory over the
Hawks, netting 23 points in 41 minutes of play.
Rose had missed the previous 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,
came into the contest 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.
