Dwane Casey said that Kyle Lowry has to get his "weight back down this summer."
This comes minutes after Lowry failed to endorse Casey as the head coach, so things are going well in Toronto. Casey said that Lowry came into the season in great shape, but struggled to regain that form after his injury late in the season. We don't have any reason to doubt Lowry will be motivated heading into next season. Apr 27 - 1:05 PM

Kyle Lowry failed to endorse Dwane Casey as Raptors head coach on Monday.

It sure sounds like Lowry is throwing his coach under the bus. "There is a few things internally that probably need to be fixed," Lowry said. And when asked for his opinion about Casey, Lowry said, "I respect Casey as a man." Casey is skating on thin ice, and his meeting with GM Masai Ujiri promises to be an uncomfortable one.

Kyle Lowry navigated more foul trouble during Game 4 to finish a season-ending blowout with 21 points, two 3-pointers, eight rebounds, four assists and a game-high six turnovers.

Toronto's terrific run after Rudy Gay's departure was almost too good to be true, and they've finished the season with more questions than answers. The good news is that GM Masai Ujiri has multiple routes to fortify the roster this summer -- in addition to the draft and trade options, Toronto will have only nine players with guaranteed contracts. They won't have to worry about Lowry, as their All-Star point guard remains under contract through 2016-17.

Kyle Lowry hit just 5-of-22 shots in Friday's Game 3 loss to the Wizards, finishing with 15 points, four rebounds, seven assists, four steals and three treys in 38 minutes.

Lowry came into the game with an illness, a shin contusion and a bad back. He hasn't been himself all series long and it's a big reason the Raptors have yet to win a game in the series. It's hard to see him getting back to 100 percent before Game 4 on Sunday.
Apr 24 - 10:55 PM

Kyle Lowry is dealing with an illness in addition to his shin contusion, but he's expected to be in uniform for Friday's Game 3 in Washington.

Lowry didn't do much on the court during Friday morning's shootaround, but all signs are pointing towards him giving it a go in a must-win game for the Raptors. He hasn't played very well at all through the first two games of the series, and while he's not going to make any excuses, his health has certainly been a factor in his less-than-stellar performances. He's a risky daily league play.

The Raptors are embracing a must-win mentality for a crucial Game 3 against the Wizards in Washington on Friday.

"It's a must-win for us," said Kyle Lowry. "Going down 3-0 would be very disheartening. One win. That's what we've got to focus on. One win, one game, one possession at a time." Lowry is clearly playing at less than 100 percent, but all signs are pointing towards Lowry suiting up for tonight's game. While the series won't end with a loss during Game 3 for the Raptors, it will essentially be over. Out of the 110 teams in NBA history that have dug themselves into a 0-3 hole, none have emerged victorious. Lowry will need to step up in a big way for the Raptors to have any shot at swinging this series in the other direction.

Kyle Lowry (shin) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, and he said he will play in Game 3 on Friday vs. the Wizards.

All signs are pointing towards Lowry suiting up for a crucial Game 3 in Washington, and hopefully he can turn the corner after a rough first two games in which he averaged just 6.5 points, 4.0 assists, 0.5 steals and 2.0 turnovers per game on 25.0 percent shooting from the field. He's clearly not playing at 100 percent, but the Raptors simply need more from him if they hope to have any chance of advancing past the first round.

Kyle Lowry (shin contusion) is fine according to head coach Dwane Casey, and he is expected to play in Game 3 on Friday.

Lowry was getting some treatment on his shin Wednesday and is also expected to practice on Thursday, so all signs point to him playing in Game 3. The Raptors have lost their first two games at home and the series now shifts to Washington, so expect Lowry to do everything he can to keep the Raptors alive in what is a must-win game. Expect an update on Lowry's status after practice on Thursday.
Apr 22 - 1:16 PM

Kyle Lowry left Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards due to a shin contusion, but he is expected to be re-evaluated on Wednesday.

We should know more details on his injury soon, but it doesn't sound serious and it would be really surprising if he had to sit out Game 3 on Friday. Lowry has been picking up careless fouls and has been vasty outplayed by John Wall so far, so hopefully he can turn things around soon. If Lowry is forced to miss any action, Greivis Vasquez and Lou Williams will have to fill the void.

Kyle Lowry had a disastrous Game 2 with only six points, two rebounds and four assists in 27 foul-plagued minutes, and he sat out late in the fourth quarter with a left ankle injury.

Lowry fouled out of Game 1, causing him to watch forlornly as his team fell in overtime, but he once again picked up needless fouls by gambling defensively. Suffice to say, the Raptors' All-Star point guard must play far better to make this a close series. Lowry was kicked in the ankle and we'll keep an eye on his injury over the next few days but it would be surprising if he sits out a must-win Game 3 on Friday.
Apr 21 - 10:58 PM

Kyle Lowry said he's feeling fine and isn't going to make any excuses for a lackluster Game 1 performance on Saturday.

Lowry shot 2-of-10 from the field on Saturday, but said he feels great and is offering no excuses. "I'm kicking, talking to you guys," Lowry said before adding that he just played a bad game. We'll look for Lowry to bounce back in Game 2 on Tuesday as another poor showing could have the Raptors headed to Washington down two games.
Apr 21 - 12:00 PM

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.
Apr 15 - 10:10 PM

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.
