TORONTO (AP) -Raptors center Andrea Bargnani and Los Angeles Clippers forward Al Thornton missed the teams' game Sunday due to injuries.
Bargnani was out with a sore left heel, ending a streak of 130 consecutive games. He was replaced in Toronto's starting lineup by Jake Voskuhl. The only Raptors player to appear in all 69 games this season, Bargnani had not missed a game since Dec. 9, 2007, when he sat out a home victory over Houston.
Bargnani, the first overall pick in the 2006 draft, is averaging 15.1 points and 5.4 rebounds this season. He matched his season-high with 10 field goals and scored 27 points in Friday's 102-89 home loss to Charlotte.
Thornton, averaging 17.1 points and 5.3 rebounds, was out due to a sore right shoulder. He was injured in the Clippers' 108-90 loss at Detroit on Friday night. He finished with just six points, ending a streak of seven games with at least 10 points.
Fred Jones replaced Thornton, the Clippers' second-leading scorer, in the starting lineup.
