The Toronto Raptors have granted guard Goran Dragic permission to leave the team. Dragic will be away indefinitely while he attends to a personal matter.

"Goran is taking some time away from the team, with our full support, to manage a personal matter," Raptors General Manager Bobby Webster said in a team statement.

Dragic was traded to Toronto as part of the transaction that saw Kyle Lowry signed-and-traded to the Miami Heat. Dragic expressed disappointment in being traded to the Raptors and many assumed he would seek a buyout or another trade. Dragic has played in just five of Toronto's first 20 games this season.
