Toronto Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas will be out at least four weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a dislocated left thumb on Thursday, the National Basketball Association team announced on Twitter.

Valanciunas was hurt in the second quarter of Wednesday’s 113-93 win over the two-time reigning champion Golden State Warriors.

The 26-year-old Lithuanian is averaging 12.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 18.8 minutes in 30 games this season. He has led the team in rebounding 11 times and recorded five double-doubles.

The Raptors also announced they have recalled Chris Boucher from their minor league Raptors 905 team. Boucher is averaging 29 points per game with the G-League club based in Mississauga, 28 kilometers (17 miles) southwest of Toronto.
