Kyle Lowry fouled out in 33 minutes of action against the Wizards on Saturday, making 2-of-10 from the field for seven points with eight boards, four assists and three turnovers.
What an horrible game from Lowry. His fouls were lazy at times and he didn't do a good job on the offensive end whatsoever. He was 1-of-8 on his shots from beyond three feet today and he'll need to attack better. Of course, John Wall is a better defender than most people give him credit for. If the Raptors get this kind of Lowry in the playoffs, they'll be extinct after the first round. Apr 18 - 2:54 PM

Kyle Lowry had a great game against the Hornets on Wednesday with 26 points, four rebounds, seven assists, three steals and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He hasn't been himself since the injury, so the Raptors have to be pleased with this encouraging finish. In his previous three games since his return, Lowry averaged just 12.7 points, 4.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 treys on 28.3 percent from the field. If the Raptors are going to make any noise in the postseason, Lowry will have to be at his best.

Kyle Lowry struggled from the field on Tuesday, hitting 6-of-20 shots to finish with 16 points, two 3-pointers, six rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers.

He shot 3-of-14 on Saturday and admitted that he's rusty after missing seven games with a back injury. "My rhythm is still off," he said. "I am missing shots I know I can make. They're going to fall and I'm not going to stop shooting." Toronto needs both Lowry and DeMar DeRozan to be healthy and aggressive to sustain a playoff run, and owners should double-check both guys' status prior to Wednesday's season finale.

Raptors' head coach Dwane Casey is unlikely to rest anyone for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics.

The Raptors are still playing for seeding, so while Casey may try and limit the minutes of some of his star players, it doesn't sound like anyone is going to spend Tuesday's game on the sidelines due to rest.
Apr 14 - 5:28 PM

Kyle Lowry struggled again on Saturday with 12 points, seven boards, one assist, three steals and one block.

He made just 3-of-14 from the field, including eight misses from beyond the arc. Lowry scored just 10 points on Friday and maybe he's not 100 percent yet. The Raptors are off until Tuesday, so the two whole days off should help him.
Apr 11 - 10:46 PM

Kyle Lowry is ready to go against the Heat on Saturday while Amir Johnson (ankle) will not play.

There was some hope that Amir would give it a go after going through shootaround, but the team would rather just rest him to get him healthy. Lowry should be starting in all leagues tonight.
Apr 11 - 6:13 PM

Kyle Lowry is still expected to play against the Heat on Saturday.

The Raptors have planned on Lowry playing for tonight. He did say he is dealing with some soreness on Friday, but he fared better than expected. Lowry should be safe to start for now and we'll add an update if any bad news arises.
Apr 11 - 3:03 PM

Kyle Lowry played 33 minutes in his return to the lineup on Friday during a 101-99 win over the Magic, scoring 10 points with eight rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer.

"I rebounded the ball pretty well. I jumped high once tonight," Lowry said after the game. "My back was sore but it wasn't as sore as I expected it to be." That's a good sign, but there's at least a chance he'll rest in the second half of a back-to-back on Saturday. According to the comments prior to the game, the Raptors are planning on having Lowry for that game against the Heat.
Apr 10 - 10:16 PM

Kyle Lowry (back) will start against the Magic on Friday night.

He must be feeling pretty good because he was expected to be a game-time call. According to some earlier comments, Lowry is not expected to be limited tonight, so feel free to start him in all standard leagues. Greivis Vasquez can be dropped while Lou Williams figures to have less chances to make plays.
Apr 10 - 5:46 PM

Kyle Lowry (back) is on track to play against the Magic on Friday night.

"As of right now, I feel good. We'll see how my body reacts when game-time comes and I'll have a decision by then," Lowry said. "I'm going to wait a few hours and see how it feels, see if my back tightens up, or if it stays loose, and we'll go from there." He is also planning to play on Saturday against the Heat. We should have another update in a couple hours, but the Raptors are planning on having Lowry without a limitation.

Kyle Lowry (back) was a full participant during shootaround, and he will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Magic.

Lowry said he was optimistic about his chances of playing tonight, but nothing is official just yet. Considering he has spent the past two weeks resting up on the sidelines, we'd speculate that he's closer to probable, and given his upside it makes sense to swoop him up in standard leagues. Greivis Vasquez will head back to the bench if Lowry can go, while Lou Williams could lose some minutes. Stay tuned.
Apr 10 - 11:49 AM

Updating a previous report, Kyle Lowry said that there's a "possibility" he plays Friday vs. the Magic.

Lowry has had two weeks to give his back some rest, and it's sounding like there's a good chance he's in uniform tomorrow. He added that he'll have a better idea on his availability for tomorrow's game after he wakes up, so expect to get another update following Friday morning's shootaround. His return to action would push Greivis Vasquez back to the bench, and Lou Williams could lose some minutes. Lowry is worth a speculative add in most leagues.
Apr 9 - 3:36 PM

Kyle Lowry (back) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

Lowry has been sidelined since March 24 with back spasms, so there's a chance he's ready to go after spending the past two weeks on the sidelines. We'll continue to monitor this situation closely, but if you don't have an add/drops cap in your league, a speculative add of Lowry makes sense. For what it's worth, Lowry said he wants to play but head coach Dwane Casey is just being cautious with his All-Star point guard.
Apr 9 - 2:24 PM

Kyle Lowry (back) and Amir Johnson (ankle) will not play vs. the Hornets on Wednesday.

Lowry is still experiencing soreness in his back and there is still no known timetable for his return. Hopefully Lowry will be able to return before the end of the regular season, but we will provide an update as soon as hear anything. Greivis Vasquez will draw another start, but he has been largely ineffective and is only worth deploying in deeper leagues. Instead, Lou Williams and DeMar DeRozan will benefit the most in Lowry's absence.

Kyle Lowry (back) is still experiencing soreness in his back and is unlikely to play against the Hornets on Wednesday, according to Raptors head coach Dwane Casey.

Greivis Vasquez will likely draw the start for Lowry on Wednesday, but doesn't offer much fantasy upside. We'll update Lowry's status as more information becomes available, but DeMar DeRozan and Lou Williams stand to see the biggest value boost if Lowry does indeed sit.
