Toronto believes Kyle Lowry's heavy usage and minutes per game average is a "big concern."
Lowry has played more minutes (859) than any player in the NBA thus far this season. "It’s a big concern. We watch it. We try to keep it down as much as we can, but at the same time we’re trying to win games," coach Dwane Casey said. Lowry agrees, even though he’s not thrilled about the possibility of extended rest down the line. "We’ve been trying to cut my minutes down," Lowry said. "Whenever [the coaches] want me to sit down I’ma do it, but right now I love to play the game of basketball, man." The problem is Lowry has been so good, it's difficult to sit him when he's clearly healthy. Dec 10 - 9:55 AM

Kyle Lowry remained on fire during a 101-94 win at Boston on Friday, scoring 34 points with seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.

He may be the hottest scorer in the NBA right now. In his last seven, he has an 81.3 true shooting percentage and a 23.3 usage rate in 35 minutes for his 25.3 points per game. On top of the hot scoring, Lowry's averages are up in minutes, treys, boards, dimes and free throw percentage compared to last year. Basically, Kyle Lowry over everything.
Dec 9 - 11:50 PM

Kyle Lowry hit 8-of-14 shots, 5-of-7 3-pointers and 4-of-6 free throws for 25 points, 11 assists and a steal in Thursday's win over the Timberwolves.

Lowry had a four-point play on a 3-pointer and did a lot of his damage in the fourth quarter, when the Raptors opened up a close game. Lowry is living up to the hype and has scored between 24 and 29 points in four of his last five games, averaging 23.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 8.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 4.4 3-pointers on 60 percent shooting over that stretch. He's a career 42 percent shooter, so don't expect him to stay this hot forever.
Dec 8 - 10:04 PM

Kyle Lowry took a shot to the mouth on Monday vs. the Cavaliers and went back to the locker room, but he will return.

He was elbowed in the mouth and was examined by the team dentist in the locker room, but he was quickly cleared to return. It shouldn't be an issue moving forward and his owners shouldn't be concerned.
Dec 5 - 8:03 PM

Kyle Lowry hit 6-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 17 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and a block in 31 minutes of Saturday's ridiculous 128-84 cakewalk over the Hawks.

Just like the Raptors, winners of six straight games, Lowry is rolling, averaging 22.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 4.6 3-pointers on 64 percent shooting over his last five. And that 64 percent shooting number is not a typo.
Dec 3 - 11:37 PM

Kyle Lowry led the Raptors to a 113-80 win over the Lakers on Friday, scoring 24 points on 8-of-12 shooting.

He made an early exit in the fourth quarter after 31 minutes with the game comfortably in the books. Lowry added seven assists, four rebounds, one steal and six triples, but also turned the ball over four times. DeMar DeRozan was getting all the headlines earlier this season, but it's been all Lowry for a couple weeks now. He's scored 24 or more points in three straight games and should have a big game against Dennis Schroder and the Hawks on Saturday.
Dec 2 - 10:07 PM

Kyle Lowry tied his season high with 29 points on Wednesday, making 8-of-13 FGs and 9-of-10 FTs with eight assists and a pair of steals in 37 minutes.

Lowry went 4-of-7 from downtown but this isn't likely to be the start of a sustained offensive surge. He's taken a backseat to DeMar DeRozan (24 points, nine boards, six assists) offensively this season, and he benefited from a matchup vs. Grizzlies rookie Andrew Harrison tonight. That said, Lowry is still an excellent, borderline-elite fantasy PG.
Nov 30 - 11:22 PM

Kyle Lowry lit up the 76ers on Monday for 24 points, eight assists, four rebounds, one steal and six 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He finished with three turnovers, but made up for it by shooting 7-of-9 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. He also hit all six of his triples. Lowry has been flying under the radar a bit due to DeMar DeRozan's hot start, but he's really picking it up, scoring 24 or more points in three out of his last five games. He's flirting with top-25 value in standard leagues and should be able to sustain it.
Nov 28 - 10:45 PM

Kyle Lowry scored 27 points on 8-of-18 shooting in a loss to the Clippers on Monday.

The Raptors have now lost four out of their last five games, but three of those losses were to the Cavaliers, Warriors and now the Clippers. Lowry added seven assists, six rebounds and three triples in the loss, and he's now scored 24 or more points in four out of his last five games.
Nov 22 - 1:44 AM

Kyle Lowry scored 28 points with nine assists, five rebounds, four steals and four treys in a 121-117 loss to the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

This was just the second time this season that Lowry eclipsed the 20-point mark. He's taken a backseat on offense with DeMar DeRozan on an absolute tear, but was a lot more aggressive vs. the Cavs, hitting 11-of-23 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line. Lowry will try to keep his foot on the gas for Wednesday's matchup with the Warriors. He's averaging 39.8 minutes over his last five, so fatigue could be a factor.
Nov 15 - 10:46 PM

Kyle Lowry scored 16 points on 7-of-15 shooting Saturday, to go with six boards, six assists and two turnovers through 41 minutes of action.

Lowry has shot just 36.4 percent from the field through the first eight games of the year, so hopefully tonight’s slight more efficient outing is a sign of what’s to come. He’s actually been getting more wide opens looks this season, so it’s only a matter of time until his shot starts to drop. He’s a solid buy-low candidate.
Nov 12 - 9:57 PM

Kyle Lowry just missed a triple-double vs. the Thunder, finishing with 19 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds in 43 minutes.

K-Low shot just 6-of-20 from the field but five of his makes were 3-pointers, and he added one block while playing 43 minutes in a matchup vs. Russell Westbrook. Lowry's shot has been off all season but a correction is inevitable -- buy low if you still can.
Nov 9 - 11:10 PM

Kyle Lowry finished Sunday's 96-91 defeat with 15 points, 10 assists, four rebounds, three 3-pointers, two assists, one block and zero turnovers in 39 minutes.

This marks Lowry's first double-digit assist performance of the season, but that's no cause for concern -- he posted 10+ assists just 10 times last season, but still averaged 6.4 dimes per game (12th in the league). He also launched 10 shots from downtown tonight, which is a nice site for fantasy owners even though he went just 3-of-10 from that range.
Nov 6 - 9:47 PM

Kyle Lowry filled it up with 13 points, eight rebounds, five assists, three steals, three blocks, five turnovers and two 3-pointers against the Heat on Friday.

That's his first 5x3 line of his career. Lowry is just cruising along and played 41 minutes tonight. Clearly, coach Dwane Casey doesn't have interest in dropping Lowry's 37.0 minutes per game from last season.
Nov 4 - 10:40 PM

Kyle Lowry (facial laceration) finished Wednesday's 113-103 victory with 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting, three 3-pointers, four steals and two assists.

K-Low needed three stitches after being elbowed in the face by Marcin Gortat, a blow that could have leveled a lesser competitor. Lowry is no stranger to injuries thanks to his physical style of play, but he only missed five games last year and there's no reason to think he'll be limited vs. the Heat on Friday.
