CLEVELAND — Cleveland Cavaliers center Jarrett Allen left Sunday night's game against the Toronto Raptors with a leg injury and just before the half was ruled out for the remainder of the game. He also injured his finger during the game.

Near the end of the first quarter, Allen was on the bench after getting banged up in a play. Allen limped to the tunnel and into the locker room, where he underwent further evaluation on his quadriceps.

After the evaluation, Allen was ruled out for the remainder of the game with a left quad contusion.

Before leaving the game, Allen notched six points and two rebounds in his 10 minutes on the court.

Head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said after the game that he did not see what caused the injury and at the moment only knew it was a quad injury. It seems the injury occurred after a play that saw Allen driving to the hoop and making contact with Raptors' Precious Achiuwa.

But Allen also injured his finger Sunday night. That injury appeared to occur when Allen jumped up and struck his hand on the rim.

While the Cavs have not confirmed the severity, Kevin Love said that Allen's finger injury was to his left, non-shooting hand.

Love also said that Allen did not seem bothered by his finger and that he remained in good spirits.

The Cavs continue to deal with the absence of other players out with injury, including Caris LeVert who is rehabbing a foot sprain, Rajon Rondo who is rehabbing a toe sprain, and Collin Sexton who is out for the season with a knee injury.
