Kyle Lowry scored 13 points with four rebounds, four assists, one block, two steals, and one 3-pointer in 44 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday.
He was getting some treatment on his back during this game, so he's still not all the way back. With the Cavs already set to face them in Cleveland, Lowry will get three full days off before Game 1 on Monday. Lowry hasn't been close to the offensive weapon he was with only a 19.2 usage rate in these playoffs, which is way down from his 24.9 during the regular season. Although, he'll get a much better matchup against Kyrie Irving. For what it's worth, Lowry had a 28.6 usage rate in his six games vs. Kyrie in the playoffs last year and a 26.0 in the four regular-season games. If his back allows it, Lowry could look like a superstar in the next round. Apr 27 - 10:43 PM

When asked about his back injury, Kyle Lowry said his body is "fantastic right now".

He wasn't quite as aggressive in Game 5, driving the ball just nine times compared to the 14 per game in the first four games of the series. Lowry's time with the basketball is also down compared to the regular season and he's also made just 32.4 percent of his jumpers. The All-Star getting an extra day off before Game 6 on Thursday should help him, so maybe he has one of those "Kyle Lowry Over Everything" explosions.

Coach Dwane Casey said Kyle Lowry's back was feeling better on Tuesday.

Here's the full quote from Casey: "Not much better, but better". Casey also added he hopes that Lowry's back will continue to loosen up with time and treatment. Game 6 in the in the Raptors vs. Bucks series is not until Thursday night, so Lowry has a couple of days to heal. Lowry is fully expected to suit up.

Kyle Lowry (back) scored 16 points (4-of-9 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs) with 10 assists, three boards, three steals and two triples in 36 minutes in a 118-93 Game 5 win over the Bucks on Monday.

He deserves a ton of credit for playing because he was clearly hurting out there. Lowry would try to avoid sitting down during his trips to the bench and was frequently stretching out his back on the baseline. He asked out of the game in the first couple minutes of the fourth quarter, but quickly returned and was able to hang in there. Lowry will now be able to rest up for a couple days for Game 6 on Thursday as the series shifts back to Milwaukee with the Raptors leading 3-2.

Kyle Lowry (back) is a go for Monday's Game 5 against the Bucks.

Lowry was never in any real danger of sitting this one out, and it's unlikely he'll have any sort of minutes limit for tonight's pivotal Game 5. Joining Lowry in the starting five will be DeMar DeRozan, DeMarre Carroll, Norman Powell and Serge Ibaka.

Kyle Lowry (back) said he is feeling much better, but he remains a game-time decision for Monday's Game 5 matchup with the Bucks.

Lowry was limited at shootaround, but all indications are that he'll take the court tonight for a crucial Game 5 in Toronto. Check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off.

Kyle Lowry (back) is expected to play in Game 5 vs. the Bucks on Monday.

Lowry arrived to shootaround with some stiffness in his back, so the Raptors gave him some treatment and sent him home instead of having him go through practice. It sounds like he's fully expected to play, but there's now some added risk if you're planning on using him in DFS. We'll be on the lookout for more updates as we approach the 7:00 ET tip-off. If he's unable to play, Cory Joseph and Delon Wright will pick up minutes, while DeMar DeRozan would see a huge bump in usage.

Kyle Lowry scored 18 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in a Game 4 win against the Bucks on Saturday.

He was a ghost in the first half with only four points and one assist in his 21.2 minutes before halftime, but Lowry busted out in the third for eight points on a 133.3 effective field goal percentage to help the Raptors pull away. Lowry still hasn't really exploded like he was for basically the first three months of the year, so maybe there's a rust factor here. He'll have the home folks behind him for Game 5 on Monday.
Apr 22 - 6:28 PM

Kyle Lowry scored 13 points during an ugly 104-77 loss to the Bucks in Game 3 on Thursday, adding five rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

There's just something about the Raptors struggling in the playoffs. This game was over at half with the Raptors trailing 57-30, and the first unit offense was just a lost cause. The starters combined for just two assists in the entire game while the Bucks had seven players with at least two assists. Maybe Lowry's wrist isn't 100 percent or maybe the Bucks trapping him has caused some problems. He'll need to step up on Saturday with the Raptors trailing 1-2.
Apr 20 - 11:00 PM

Kyle Lowry hit 6-of-12 shots, two 3-pointers and 8-of-9 free throws for 22 points, four rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block in Tuesday's 106-100 win over the Bucks, and also hit the shot of the game to tie the series at 1-1.

Lowry's step back, fadeaway jumper over Malcolm Brogdon with 8.9 seconds left on the clock gave the Raptors a four-point lead and essentially won the game for his team. Lowry and DeMar DeRozan were a bit quiet in the fourth quarter, but Lowry brought the arena alive and kept this series from getting out of hand with two games in Milwaukee on the horizon. Lowry had just four points on 2-of-11 shooting in Game 1, so while his Game 2 numbers might seem a little disappointing based on his regular-season stats, it was a whole lot better than what he did on Saturday. Game 3 is Thursday in Milwaukee, when the Raptors will look to re-take home-court advantage.
Apr 18 - 9:58 PM

Kyle Lowry said he's going to have to "force some shots" to be more aggressive vs. the Bucks on Tuesday.

"My teammates want me to be more aggressive, so I’m going to have to force some more shots," said Lowry, who shot 2-of-11 on Saturday. "I felt like I made the right passes [Saturday] ... Every shot I took was contested or ran off ... but I gotta be more aggressive." That's music to the ears of prospective DFS owners.
Apr 17 - 2:25 PM

Kyle Lowry made 2-of-11 from the field for four points with two rebounds, six assists, tow steals and one turnover in 34 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

For whatever reason, Lowry just can't perform in the opener of the postseason. In his Game 1 outings as a Raptor, Lowry has made just 26.6 percent from the field for 9.8 points per game, but coach Dwane Casey is still going to lean on his guy and give him huge minutes.
Apr 15 - 9:29 PM

Kyle Lowry scored 13 points with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 19 first-half minutes against the Cavs on Wednesday.

With the Raptors having nothing to play for, Lowry will take a seat in the second half while Delon Wright gets a chance to show what he can do. Lowry looked just fine in his return to action, averaging about 19 minutes per half in his 3.5 games. If he's on, the Raptors could make some noise in the postseason.
Apr 12 - 9:22 PM

Coach Dwane Casey said that he will play all his regulars in the Raptors season finale on Wednesday vs. Cleveland.

Casey said that he wants to gets his guys "more reps together" and to "go into the playoffs with momentum." Lowry will finish the season playing each of Toronto's final four games after making his way back from a wrist injury.
Apr 11 - 1:40 PM

Kyle Lowry stuffed the stat sheet during Sunday's win over the Knicks, racking up 17 points, 11 assists, seven rebounds, four 3-pointers, three steals, one block and four turnovers in 38 minutes.

Since returning to the court, Lowry has compiled averages of 18.7 points, 9.0 dimes, 6.3 boards, 2.3 triples, 3.7 turnovers and an elite 2.3 steals per contest on 47.5 percent shooting. He should have a big game in Toronto’s final matchup of the regular season against Cleveland on Wednesday.
