Aaron Gray is expected to make a successful recovery from the heart procedure, and should be back in the Raptors’ lineup a couple of weeks from now. From the Toronto Sun: “Toronto Raptors center Aaron Gray underwent a corrective heat procedure on Monday, intended to put an end to recent episodes of an elevated heart rate.
