Sullinger is in his first season with the Toronto Raptors after spending his first four years with Boston, so this is a tough way for him to begin his career in Canada.
Sullinger hurt his foot during a preseason game earlier this month and has missed time since. He was viewed as doubtful for the team’s opener prior to opting for surgery.
Sullinger averaged 10.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game last season with the Celtics and was expected to be Toronto’s starting power forward this season.
