TORONTO -- Newly acquired forward Rudy Gay is expected to make his debut with the Toronto Raptors on Sunday against the visiting Miami Heat.

A team spokesman says that Gay won't play in Friday night's home game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Gay isn't scheduled to arrive in Toronto until late afternoon Friday and still needs to take a physical.

Toronto traded point guard Jose Calderon and forward Ed Davis to the Memphis Grizzlies for Gay and centre Hamed Haddadi on Wednesday.

The Raptors also sent a second-round draft choice in 2013 and cash considerations to the Grizzlies, who flipped Calderon to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for forwards Austin Daye and Tayshaun Prince.

Gay is averaging 17.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game this season.
