TORONTO -- Toronto Raptors forward Landry Fields will be sidelined for several weeks after having surgery on his right wrist.
The Raptors said it was a "minor surgical procedure" to address the ulnar nerve release in his hand.
Fields underwent ulnar nerve transposition surgery in November of 2012 to alleviate nerve compression in his right elbow.
The 25-year-old is expected to return to light practising in three weeks.
Fields has appeared in 23 games with one start this season, averaging 2.4 points, 2.2 rebounds and 11.9 minutes.
