DENVER -- Toronto has claimed forward Pops Mensah-Bonsu off waivers from Houston and he is expected to be in uniform for the Raptors' game at Denver.

Forward Hedo Turkoglu has been ruled out for Tuesday night's game against the Nuggets with a sore left hip and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Antoine Wright, who's dealing with a sore left ankle.

Mensah-Bonsu played for the Raptors last season. He signed a free-agent deal with Houston on Sept. 3 and played a total of 12 minutes in four games before he was waived Friday.
