CLEVELAND -- Raptors All-Star forward Chris Bosh is back in Toronto after undergoing surgery to have a nasal fracture repaired.

A team spokesman said Bosh was released from the Cleveland Clinic on Thursday, two days after he was accidentally elbowed in the face during a game by Cleveland's Antawn Jamison. Bosh is expected to need weeks to recover from an operation he had on Wednesday to fix the fracture.

Toronto's leading scorer will miss the remainder of the regular season with the Raptors, who have a one-half game lead over Chicago for the final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs with four to play.

The Bulls host the Cavaliers on Thursday. Toronto plays at Atlanta on Friday.
