Patrick McCaw has had a blessed NBA experience, winning three championships in his first three NBA seasons.

But this sounds like a scary real-life situation.

Raptors release:

After a short period of experiencing discomfort in his left knee, Patrick McCaw underwent arthroscopic surgery Wednesday to determine and correct the issue. A benign mass on the back of the knee was removed. The procedure was performed by Dr. Riley Williams at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

A timetable for McCaw’s return has not been established. He will be reevaluated in four weeks and his condition will be updated as appropriate.

Thankfully, the mass was benign. McCaw also has some financial security, a $4 million salary this season and next.

The Raptors will continue to rely on Norman Powell as their main backup guard behind Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet. Terence Davis and Matt Thomas are also in the mix.
