Raptors swingman Patrick McCaw exited Toronto's Wednesday night game against the Philadelphia 76ers due to a facial contusion, and he was ruled out for the remainder of the contest.

McCaw was helped to the dressing room with 11:07 left in the first half, holding a towel to his face, after a play near the Raptors' defensive basket. 

Philadelphia forward Norvel Pelle appeared to hit McCaw in the nose with his arm as the players jockeyed for a rebound.

Just 17 seconds earlier, McCaw had entered the game for the first time.

McCaw, 24, is averaging 5.7 points, 2.6 assists and 2.2 rebounds in 22 games (11 starts) for Toronto this season. He is in his fourth NBA season, having joined the Raptors last season after a three-game stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

McCaw spent his first two seasons with the Golden State Warriors, making him part of three NBA championship teams in his first three pro seasons. For his career, he is averaging 4.0 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists.
