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.
