Barnes had snapped a streak of 10 straight three-point misses, nailing two in the first half of a game the Raptors led.

Big man Kelly Olynyk also briefly went to the back following a hard fall, but returned to start the second half in place of Barnes.

It’s unclear what happened to Barnes and Raptors head coach Darko Rajakovic said doctors were taking a look at his hand post-game. It appeared he might have been kicked by teammate Immanuel Quickley, or an errant pass hit him. Later in the night the Raptors announced Barnes had suffered a fracture and would be out indefinitely.

The Raptors led by two points before Barnes got hurt, but ended up losing 120-105.

Toronto hosts Charlotte on Sunday.
