Big man Khem Birch is heading towards the right direction following his knee injury.

He is expected to be in the Toronto Raptors’ late September training camp following his early offseason surgery.

The undrafted Birch underwent arthroscopic surgery to clean up loose debris in his right knee. He managed to play in 55 regular season games, compiling a 4.5 points average to go with 4.3 boards and over 48 percent shooting. 

He is currently with the Canadian senior basketball team for the upcoming fourth window of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Americas Qualifiers.
