Kyle Lowry acknowledged that he has not been "playing well at all" for Toronto this postseason.
"[I'm] trying to just get the touch back," said Lowry, who spent 90 minutes after Game 1's loss getting up shots. "I don't know where it's at, it's kind of mind-boggling right now. It's frustrating, but I'm not going to shy away from the criticism or anything. I want to continue to be aggressive, shoot shots and take the onus." Lowry is currently in a horrid shooting slump, connecting on just 30.6 percent of his shot attempts through eight playoff games, but it sounds like he's going to try and shoot his way out of it. He'll need to be better in Game 2 on Thursday if the Raptors hope to even up their second-round series vs. the Heat. May 4 - 9:59 AM

Kyle Lowry scored just seven points on 3-of-13 shooting in Tuesday's 102-96 overtime loss to the Heat in Game 1.

He did hit a halfcourt buzzer beater to send the game to overtime, but other than that Lowry was pretty awful tonight. He didn't have a single point at halftime and finished the game with six assists, four boards, three steals and three turnovers in 43 minutes. Lowry didn't talk to reporters after the game because he immediately went to the practice court to get up some extra shots, so hopefully he will bounce back in Game 2 on Thursday.

Kyle Lowry made 4-of-14 from the field for 10 points with five rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer during a loss to the Pacers on Friday.

While he has been playing well on defense and as a passer, the efficiency issues are really hurting the Raptors. In his previous five games, Lowry only turned in a 44.5 true shooting percentage. He had better efficiency at home during the season, so maybe that'll help him out in Game 7 on Sunday.
Apr 29 - 10:46 PM

Kyle Lowry scored 14 points in Tuesday's 102-99 win over the Pacers, adding five assists, four boards, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He still can't find his shot, finishing just 3-of-11 from the field after shooting 32.2 percent in his previous four games. Lowry said that his elbow is a non-issue, so he's basially just struggling to get out of a shooting slump. "We’re going to ride or die with DeMar [DeRozan] and Kyle [Lowry]," Dwane Casey said. "They haven’t shot the ball great, but it’s still basketball. We’re going to go with them, they’re our star players, they’re all-stars for a reason and we’re trying, as a coach and as a staff, to try to put them in the best position to be successful." DeRozan got on track in Game 5, so hopefully it's Lowry's turn in Game 6.

Kyle Lowry said his elbow injury is a non-issue and unrelated to his current shooting slump.

"Nope. I’m just missing shots. I get some good looks, but I’m just missing shots," Lowry said. Until if and when K-Low starts making shots, he'll continue to get questions about whether or not his elbow is hampering his play. Through his first four playoff games in 2-16, Lowry is shooting just 19-of-59 (25.4 percent) from the field.

Kyle Lowry made 4-of-12 from the field for 12 points during a Game 4 100-83 loss to the Pacers on Saturday, adding three rebounds, five assists, one steal, three turnovers and six fouls.

The Raptors were torched early and had a terrible finish, as well. Like fellow All-Star DeMar DeRozan, Lowry is struggling big time in this series, averaging 15.5 points, 4.0 boards, 7.3 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.3 treys on 32.2 percent from the field in four games. The Raptors have a lot of work to do before Game 5. Lowry will be a risky player to use.
Apr 23 - 6:13 PM

Kyle Lowry scored 21 points with eight assists, four boards, one steal and four 3-pointers in Thursday's win over the Pacers.

He still wasn't very efficient from the field, shooting 8-of-21 with a couple of turnovers, but he looked much better than he did in the first two games of the series. Lowry is only shooting 31.9 percent in this series, so that obviously has to improve if the Raptors want to make a lengthy playoff run.
Apr 21 - 10:48 PM

Kyle Lowry made 4-of-13 from the field for 18 points with seven rebounds, nine assists, one steal and two turnovers in 40 minutes during a Game 2 win over the Pacers on Monday.

While he did not shoot the ball well, Lowry's hustle and play-making was the key for the first unit's success. Lowry is now just 7-of-26 from the field in this series as George Hill has been doing a good job on him. Lowry should be better in Game 3.
Apr 18 - 10:33 PM

Kyle Lowry played one of his worst games in years during a 100-90 loss to the Pacers on Saturday, making 3-of-13 from the field for 11 points with two rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one 3-pointer and six turnovers.

Yuck. He had a 32.4 true shooting percentage and was making mistake after mistake. To put it another way, Lowry ended 23 possessions, so only coming away with 11 points in just not acceptable. It almost looked like Lowry was forcing his play because now the Raptors have three straight Game 1 losses now. He'll be better, but this isn't a great matchup for him.
Apr 16 - 3:54 PM

Kyle Lowry said on Friday that his elbow is a "non-issue."

The Raptors were very cautious with him down the stretch and gave him several maintenance days, so he should be relatively fresh for the playoffs. Lowry is coming off his best ever regular season and will try to help the Raptors make some noise in the postseason.
Apr 15 - 1:45 PM

Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan and Jonas Valanciunas will all be rested for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

With Toronto resting their primary weapons on Wednesday night, guys like Cory Joseph, Norman Powell and Terrence Ross figure to see an expanded role on offense. Bruno Caboclo could also get into the rotation, but Joseph and Powell would be the recommended DFS targets here.

Dwane Casey will not be resting his starters for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

Owners of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan can go ahead and deploy those guys with confidence with an extremely favorable matchup against Philly. Tuesday will be the first game of a back-to-back set for Toronto, so Lowry and DeRozan owners should probably confirm their status for Wednesday's game against the Nets.
Apr 12 - 5:55 PM

Kyle Lowry returned from a rest day to score 15 points in a too-close-for-comfort victory on Sunday, hitting 5-of-15 shots with seven assists, two steals, one block and four turnovers.

Lowry didn't turn the ball over in 32 minutes and the Raptors survived despite his rough shooting night, which included an 0-of-4 mark in the fourth quarter. He's a definite DNP risk with back-to-back games vs. weak opponents on Tuesday and Wednesday, so owners should be routinely checking his status.
Apr 10 - 10:29 PM

Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan will both play vs. the Knicks on Sunday.

Lowry rested on Friday vs. the Pacers but he should see his normal workload tonight. The Raptors have another back-to-back set on Tuesday vs. the 76ers and Wednesday vs. the Nets, so his owners shouldn't be surprised if he gets another maintenance day.
Apr 10 - 7:41 PM

Kyle Lowry (rest) will not play on Friday vs. the Pacers.

This is the second night of a back-to-back set and the Raptors aren't going to catch the Cavaliers for the top seed, so they're just being cautious. Expect Cory Joseph and Delon Wright to handle the PG duties tonight. Lowry should be back for Sunday's game vs. the Knicks.
