Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

The Toronto Raptors will see the return of Landry Fields on Tuesday when they take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. Fields has been out since Nov. 7 with an elbow injury and has only played in five games this season.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said he was unsure how many minutes Fields would get or if he would get in the game at all with Toronto's wings all playing well at the moment, writes Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun. The Raptors are coming off their first back-to-back wins of the season.

The Raptors signed Fields to a three-year, $20 million deal this offseason after spending his first three seasons with the Knicks. Fields averaged 2.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.6 assists in 21.4 minutes in his five games with the Raptors this season. He will compete for playing time with DeMar DeRozan, Mickael Pietrus, Linas Kleiza, Alan Anderson, and Terrence Ross.

The Raptors (6-19) take on the Cavs (5-20) at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday night.
