Raptors without Turkoglu for Indiana rematch Add to ...

The Toronto Raptors will attempt to extend their National Basketball Association winning streak to six games without the services of Hedo Turkoglu.

Raptors coach Jay Triano confirmed after today's practice that the veteran forward will travel with the team to Indianapolis for Tuesday night's rematch against the Indiana Pacers but won't play.

Turkoglu suffered a small fracture to the orbital bone beneath his right eye early in Sunday's 117-112 win over the Pacers at the ACC.

"He's getting it re-evaluated right now," Triano said. "He will travel with us but probably won't play."

Triano said he is not sure how long Turkoglu will be lost to the team.

When he does return he will likely be wearing a plastic face mask as protection.

Triano also said that rookie DeMar DeRozan has not yet fully recovered from a sprained right ankle and also will miss the game on Tuesday.
