Matt Thomas joined the Toronto Raptors’ list of injured players on Monday.

The rookie guard fractured his left middle finger during Saturday’s 119-116 win at Atlanta. He’ll be evaluated by a specialist on Tuesday.

“So we should know a little bit more about the timetable,” coach Nick Nurse said.

Kyle Lowry, who is out with a fractured thumb, and Serge Ibaka (ankle strain) were sidelined for the eighth consecutive game on Monday when the Raptors played host to the Philadelphia 76ers in a rematch of last season’s thrilling Eastern Conference final.

“We don’t want to lose anybody else,” Nurse said. “Seems like we got quite a few guys out, but on we go. On we go.”

Nurse had hoped Ibaka would be ready to play Monday, but said he likely won’t see action now until Toronto plays host to the Utah Jazz on Sunday.

Lowry’s expected return date is also still unknown.

Also missing Monday night were Patrick McCaw (knee), Stanley Johnson (knee) and Dewan Hernandez (thumb).
