TORONTO -- Raptors rookie Jonas Valanciunas broke his right ring finger in the first quarter Friday night against Orlando.

Valanciunas grabbed his hand after battling for a loose ball under the Magic basket midway through the quarter. He was slow to get back on defense, and left the court wincing in pain when he was replaced by Amir Johnson. Valanciunas was taken for X-rays, which revealed the fracture.

Drafted fifth overall in 2011, Valanciunas played in Lithuania last season before joining the Raptors. He's averaging 8.1 points and 5.4 rebounds and has started all 28 games.
