Toronto Raptors center Aaron Gray underwent a surgical procedure Monday to correct recurring episodes of a rapid heart rate.
Gray is expected to be able to return to the court following the procedure - termed an ablation - at Toronto's Sunnybrook Hospital.
The 27-year-old Gray was signed by the Raptors on Dec. 11 and appeared in a pair of preseason games.
A second-round draft pick out of Pittsburgh in 2007, Gray averaged 3.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and a career-high 13.0 minutes last season for the New Orleans Hornets.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2006 draft, Bargnani entered Wednesday's game averaging a career-high 23.5 points.
He has scored at least 20 points in eight of the first 10 games.

But somehow, it was over before it ended, Minnesota fading in the final seconds, relying on fouls to cling to a chance.
There was a sort of background suspense to most of Monday night's...
Andrea Bargnani matched his season-high with 31 points, Amir Johnson, a former Piston, had a season-high 19 points and 11 rebounds for his second straight double-double, and the Toronto Raptors beat Minnesota, 97-87, on Monday night.
On Hardwood Paroxysm, James Herbert has a fascinating conversation with new Raptors coach Dwane Casey. Toronto had the 30th best defense in the NBA last year but is now 16th. No team has improved more, even though the Raptors made few personnel changes and had a short training camp. It's a tribute to the power of coaching, from a coach who has been passed over for job after...
