Milos Raonic says he does not yet know the extent of the leg injury he suffered during the Indian Wells final against Novak Djokovic, or whether he will play Miami.

The 26-year-old Canadian said he began having problems a few games into his match against Djokovic, but did not know exactly what the injury was. 

"I'm not sure,” said Raonic, who had been sidelined with an adductor injury since the Australian Open. “I have to see the medical staff here and discuss with my own [staff]. [It] feels similar, but not as bad. I don't think I let it get as bad."

Raonic won just two games in his third Masters final.

"I don't think it affected my effort," he said. "I thought he played much better than I did."

Raonic is No. 18 in the rankings, but will move up several spots following his performance at Indian Wells.
