The Raptors will use their regular starting lineup on Wednesday, though coach Dwane Casey will monitor his key players' minutes.
"We don't want to run them into the ground but we're competing," Casey said. "We want to stay in compete mode." He's been consistent in the opinion that his team isn't good enough to flip a switch in the playoffs, so guys like Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan have continued to play heavy minutes as the Raptors fought their way into the East's third seed.

Kyle Lowry scored 28 points with two boards, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

He fouled out which was his sixth time fouling out on the season. Lowry actually ranks third in the NBA in fouls per game and 10th in technical fouls, so he's certainly on the refs' radar. Fouling issues aside, Lowry has been a monster all season and he's a big reason why the Raptors will have a home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
Apr 13 - 6:12 PM

Kyle Lowry not only dressed and played despite his knee injury, he got 38 minutes and 29 points, five rebounds, eight assists and two 3-pointers on 9-of-19 shooting in Wednesday's win.

It sounded like his minutes would be limited tonight, but that was hardly the case. He looked fantastic and as long as his knee feels OK in the morning, it looks like he might keep playing through the end of the season. Stay tuned.
Apr 9 - 11:04 PM

Kyle Lowry (knee) will dress for Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors.

He is not on a minutes restriction tonight and Lowry is good to go. He's been out for the entire month of April with his knee injury and fantasy owners can throw him back into their lineups. Greivis Vasquez should still see minutes in the 20s and probably earned more ball handling duties, so he's still an option in deeper leagues.
Apr 9 - 5:26 PM

Kyle Lowry, who is dealing with a sore knee, and Amir Johnson (ankle) practiced on Tuesday.

This is great news for their owners and we're guessing this means there's a decent chance we'll see them in uniform and on the court for Wednesday's game against the Sixers. However, they should technically be thought of as game-time decisions until we get more information tomorrow.
Apr 8 - 1:30 PM

Kyle Lowry (knee) and Amir Johnson (ankle) remain day-to-day in advance of Wednesday's home game vs. the 76ers.

The Raptors won't practice on Monday so owners will have to wait another day for updates. The Sixers are bad enough that Toronto may be tempted to rest both of their ailing veterans, though coach Dwane Casey has said unequivocally that he prefers to have his full team active to finish the regular season on a strong note.
Apr 7 - 11:53 AM

Kyle Lowry (knee) and Amir Johnson (ankle) will not play against the Bucks on Saturday night.

It will be Lowry's third game out of the lineup and Greivis Vasquez will get another start. Lowry and the Raptors are eyeing the playoffs, so they should be able to handle the Bucks even without two of their best players.
Apr 5 - 7:29 PM

Kyle Lowry (knee) and Amir Johnson (ankle) will travel for Saturday's game against the Bucks, but are still questionable for that contest.

The Raptors don't play until Wednesday after that so it would make some sense to take advantage of the extended rest, but the Raptors are in the hunt for home court advantage so anything is possible. Greivis Vasquez is still worth holding until we get confirmation on Lowry's status.
Apr 4 - 10:28 PM

Kyle Lowry (knee) will not play against the Pacers on Friday night.

It will be his second straight game out and the Raptors surprisingly didn't miss him in a big win over the Rockets on Wednesday. Lowry should be considered as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Bucks. It'll be Greivis Vasquez running the show tonight and he serves as a top-20 point guard play tonight.
Apr 4 - 6:12 PM

Kyle Lowry (knee) is "likely out" for Friday's game vs. the Pacers, according to the National Post.

He has a bruised kneecap and the Raptors are also on the first night of a back-to-back set before they go to Milwaukee on Saturday, so it would not be a surprise to see him sit. This would be Lowry's second consecutive game out of the lineup and we'll have another update when things become more official. Fantasy owners should prepare to fire up Greivis Vasquez again.
Apr 4 - 5:27 PM

Kyle Lowry has been diagnosed with a bruised left kneecap.

The Raptors are officially calling Lowry day-to-day ahead of Friday's game against the Pacers. He appeared close to playing on Wednesday night, but this is the kind of injury that can get worse by wearing and tear on it. For now, expect Lowry to be a true game-time call with backup Greivis Vasquez at the ready once again.
Apr 4 - 10:03 AM

Coach Dwane Casey said he's not planning on resting Kyle Lowry (knee) or Amir Johnson (ankle) the rest of the way.

The coach said he doesn't want his team to relax for the final seven games of the season and wants them to have a high intensity. The Raptors are in a tie with the Bulls at 43-32 and are most likely to get the three or four seed in the playoffs due to a 2.5 game lead over the Nets. Lowry received treatment all day and was very close to suiting up against his former team for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets, but the medical staff held him out due to swelling. He should be considered questionable for Friday's big game vs. the Pacers.

Updating a previous item, Kyle Lowry (knee) will not play against the Rockets on Wednesday night.

To be clear, this update comes from the team and he is not going to dress. He wanted to play against his former team tonight, but the swelling in his knee must have been too much. The good news is Lowry should be ready to go for the weekend and his status seems fine for the playoffs as it stands right now. Fantasy owners will want to pick up and play Greivis Vasquez since he'll face off against Jeremy Lin.
Apr 2 - 6:04 PM

Updating a previous item, Kyle Lowry (knee) will try to play against the Rockets on Wednesday night.

He is likely a full-blown game-time decision for tonight and warmups will be a deciding factor. Lowy is still dealing with soreness, but there is nothing structurally wrong with his left knee. If he can't go Greivis Vasquez would start. Stay tuned.
Apr 2 - 5:46 PM

Kyle Lowry (knee) is not expected to play against the Rockets on Wednesday.

He could barely walk on Monday night and the swelling in his knee could still be bothering him. Lowry has turned in his best year as a pro and it should be interesting to see how the Raptors fare without him. It'll likely be the Greivis Vasquez show at point guard, which makes him a nice target in daily formats.
