Mickael Pietrus sat out Sunday afternoon’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers with knee tendinitis, but the condition is not serious, agent Bill McCandless told RealGM.
The tendinitis is in Pietrus’s left knee – not the right knee on which he had surgery over the offseason.
Pietrus is day-to-day.
Pietrus signed with the Toronto Raptors on Nov. 30 and has swiftly climbed the team’s depth chart, starting in three of his four games. He has averaged 10.8 points and three rebounds in 31.6 minutes per game as a Raptor.
Linas Kleiza started for the Raptors on Sunday in Pietrus's place.
