Raptors centre Gray kept out of games while undergoing cardiac tests

Toronto Raptors centre Aaron Gray is out of action indefinitely while he undergoes further monitoring and testing for a rapid heart rate.

The Raptors decided to withhold Gray from game action after consulting with league cardiologist Dr. Allan Schwartz. Gray will still be able to participate in full contact practices, the team said Friday.

Gray signed with the Raptors on Dec. 11 as a free agent. He had nine rebounds in 32 minutes over two pre-season games.
