The procedure was a precautionary measure to prevent infection, the release adds.
McRae suffered a fracture to that finger during the season opener against Dallas on October 23. He returned to action on November 6. The pin became dislodged on a dunk attempt against Charlotte on November 22.
McRae has been a part of the team’s rotation but this could impact his presence on the roster. His $1.6MM contract, which is partially guaranteed at $600K, becomes fully guaranteed on December 20, per Basketball Insiders.
McRae is averaging 8.9 PPG, 2.4 RPG and 2.8 APG in 18.1 MPG in 13 games this season.
