Toronto's Carter Will Miss Two Games

Toronto's Carter Will Miss Two Games

November 28, 2000

By the Associated Press—Vince Carter, the NBA's scoring leader, will miss at least two games because of an injured tendon in his left knee.

The Toronto Raptors star was hurt during the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Chicago Bulls and did not return.

Carter, who is averaging 29.8 points a game, shot an air ball on a fadeaway jumper. He felt a twitch while in the air and landed awkwardly 3:09 into the game.

Carter, who was scoreless, was assisted off the court.

"I was stepping back to shoot and as I planted, the knee gave out," Carter said after Sunday's game. "I knew something wasn't right. It's the top of my knee. ... I'm not worried about the next game. Health is first.'

Carter won't travel with the team on the two-game road trip to Dallas on Tuesday night and Charlotte on Wednesday night. The Raptors listed him as day to day.

His streak of appearing in a franchise-record 145 games will end.
