The Raptors are having some depth issues out on the perimeter. Actually, some is an understatement. More like buried under an avalanche.

First Kyle Lowry is out a couple weeks with a bone bruise in his foot.

Now we learn Wednesday was the day Landry Fields had elbow surgery and he is out indefinitely, as reported by Raptors play-by-play man Matt Devlin.

Fields underwent ulnar nerve transposition surgery yesterday to address compression/entrapment in his right elbow. #Raptors

Fields started five games but had not been right, averaging just 2.4 points per game on 20.8 percent shooting. He will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks and a timetable for his return will be set then.Usually a lot of his minutes would go to reserve swingman Alan Anderson — but he also is out for at least three weeks, Devlin tweets.

Alan Anderson has a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot. Estimated to be out for 3-6 weeks. #Raptors

Yikes.

You’d xpect to see a lot more Linas Kleiza but he is out Thursday with a sore ankle. Next up is Dominic McGuire but he is out until Saturday due to a family issue.

Expect to see some Andrea Bargnani at the three. Maybe, finally, we will get to see some of rookie Terrence Ross because of this, too.
