After (Perry) Jones limped off, the Thunder was left with seven.
He did not return.
Less than a minute later, Thunder guard Reggie Jackson hit the floor hard and came up clutching his right wrist, the same wrist that forced him to miss the final five preseason games. He favored his wrist for the remainder of the game, keeping it close to his midsection, holding it with his left hand and flexing it at various times.
Sebastian Telfair was called for a flagrant 2 foul when he hit Raptors forward Tyler Hansbrough in the face. The contact looked incidental, but the call carries an automatic ejection.
Center Kendrick Perkins became the lone reserve left.

LeBron James Still Uncertain for Season Opener
LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.
James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
