TORONTO - Toronto Raptors center Aaron Gray underwent a corrective heat procedure on Monday, intended to put an end to recent episodes of an elevated heart rate.

The surgery, called ablation, was performed at Toronto's Sunnybrook Hospital by Drs. Jaspal Singh and Eugene Crystal.

Gray is expected to return to action in two weeks.

The Raptors signed the four-year NBA veteran as a free agent on December 11. He appeared in both of the club's preseason games and totaled nine rebounds.

Gray averaged 3.1 points and 4.2 rebounds in 41 games for New Orleans last season. He was selected by Chicago in the second round of the 2007 draft and has averaged 3.6 points with 3.5 rebounds in 190 career games.
