Kyle Lowry dominated during a 119-94 win in Cleveland on Thursday, making 6-of-9 from the field and all 10 free throws for 25 points with one rebound, six assists and three 3-pointers.

That's quite a stat line in just 20 minutes. Lowry played a surprising 37.0 minutes per game last year, but chances are his minutes will be dialed back due to some depth behind him and now that he's 30 years old. While Lowry is coming off a career-high scoring season, he's still more of a player to take at the turn of the second and third rounds.

Kyle Lowry will reportedly opt out of his contract after the 2016-17 season.

While Lowry will reportedly choose to become a free agent after the season, that doesn't necessarily mean he wants to leave the Raptors. "If you're that franchise's guy, and you're the guy that they've been rolling with, and you've given that franchise everything you have, yeah, I think [the talks] should be easy," Lowry said. "I think it should be a situation where a guy shouldn't have to talk to another team." Free agency plans aside, Lowry is worth a look towards the end of the first round of fantasy drafts after a career year in 2015-16.

Kyle Lowry was a late scratch vs. the Clippers on Wednesday.

Lowry was on the active roster but was never likely to play once Fred VanVleet was announced as the starting PG. He missed only five games last season despite averaging 37.0 minutes and playing with a physical style, so fantasy owners can't complain about some rest during a meaningless preseason game.
Oct 6 - 1:10 AM

Kyle Lowry is expected to opt out of his contract at the conclusion of the 2016-17 season.

As an 11-year veteran, Lowry could potentially haul in a five-year, $196 million contract, so him opting out makes perfect sense. He's coming off a career-year in which he put up first-round value behind averages of 21.2 points, 4.7 boards, 6.4 assists, 2.1 steals, 2.8 triples and 2.9 turnovers per game on 42.7 percent shooting, and he should be able to return to those numbers entering a contract year. Look his way towards the end of Round 1.

Kyle Lowry said that he's excited for the opportunity to represent his country at the 2016 Olympic Games.

"I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would get picked for Team USA, but it worked out," Lowry said. "It's just an exciting moment, an exciting time. I'm just happy to be in that situation to be able to say I'll be in the Olympics." Lowry will participating with Team USA for the first time, and with Kyrie Irving currently the only other point guard on the roster, Lowry could earn his fair share of minutes for Team USA. He'll be worth a first-round pick in next year's drafts.

Kyle Lowry has accepted an invitation to play with Team USA at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Chris Paul had endorsed Lowry to replace him on the roster after withdrawing from the Olympics and it looks like that endorsement has come to fruition. We'll keep an eye on the 30-year-old over the summer, but it would appear that Lowry's elbow issue from the playoffs is behind him if he feels healthy enough to play with Team USA.
Jun 23 - 10:54 AM

Kyle Lowry will have his right elbow evaluated on Saturday.

He said in his exit interview that his elbow is "fine" and he just dropped 35 points in Friday's Game 6 loss, so the Raptors are probably just going to look at it as a precaution. Lowry admitted that surgery could be an option, but there will hopefully be another update after the physical. Regardless, he should be 100 percent for the start of the 2016-17 season.
May 28 - 11:17 AM

Kyle Lowry scored 35 points during a season-ending 113-87 loss to the Cavs on Friday, adding three rebounds, three assists, one block and six 3-pointers.

He's been terrible in almost all of the losses in this postseason, but not even this terrific game could help his team. Lowry was a late bloomer in his career, posting career highs in points, steals and tying his best total in rebounds during his All-Star campaign this season. Lowry turned 30 years old this past season and his fantasy owners saw him post first-round value. He has a very good chance to repeat next year.

Kyle Lowry was named to the All-NBA Third Team on Thursday.

Paul George, LaMarcus Aldridge, Andre Drummond and Klay Thompson also received Third Team honors, and Lowry becomes just the third Raptors in franchise history to make an All-NBA squad. Vince Carter and Chris Bosh were the other Raptors to have accomplished the feat.

Kyle Lowry scored only 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting during Wednesday's crushing road loss, adding six assists, three rebounds and five turnovers in 29 minutes.

The Cavs trapped Lowry at every opportunity and he struggled as a result, going scoreless for the first 18 minutes of the game. It's been a tale of two cities for Lowry in the series -- he's averaging 27.5 points in two home games, but just 11.3 points in three road games. Toronto has now been outscored in 11 of 12 quarters in Cleveland during the series, which is a huge hurdle even if they tie it up with a home win in Game 6.
May 25 - 11:20 PM

Kyle Lowry was outstanding during a 105-99 win over the Cavs in Game 4 on Monday, scoring 35 points with five rebounds, five assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.

He was on fire early with 16 points on 100.0 effective field goal percentage to kick this game off. Lowry and DeMar DeRozan scored a combined 67 points in their best combined scoring effort this postseason. To nobody's surprise, Raptors continue to go as Lowry goes in the postseason. During wins, he has a 56.9 true shooting percentage and a 2.5 assist:turnover ratio. In the losses, those numbers are 38.9 and 1.6, respectively. The Cavs should be doing all they can to stop Lowry.
May 24 - 12:06 AM

Kyle Lowry snapped out of his shooting slump with 20 points during a win over the Cavs on Saturday, adding six rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He was 7-of-13 from the field, including 4-of-8 from deep. Lowry made just 1-of-15 from beyond the arc in the first two games of this series, but got it going early. He was in some foul trouble during this game and the Raptors holding it together while he was on the bench was key. Lowry has actually shot the ball worse at home in the postseason, so that's not necessarily why he was better tonight. Obviously the Raptors need Lowry to play well to get another game in this series.
May 21 - 11:23 PM

Kyle Lowry made 4-of-14 from the field for 10 points during a 108-89 loss in Cleveland on Thursday, adding six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and five turnovers.

He finally made his first 3-pointer of this series, but he's only 1-of-15 in the last two games. Lowry is also struggling on defense, as well. The Raptors continue to not use Lowry at the end of the first half and it was costly tonight. They ended the second half giving up a 16-2 run to the Cavs to basically put the game out of reach. Lowry was coming into this series with some very nice momentum, but it's now slowed to a crawl. Maybe the home-court advantage in Game 2 can help them. Lowry did go to the locker room, but he's fine.
May 19 - 11:23 PM

Kyle Lowry was held to just eight points in Tuesday's 115-84 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 1, adding five assists, four boards and four turnovers.

Kyrie Irving and the Cavs did a great job defending Lowry tonight, holding him to 4-of-14 from the field and 0-of-7 from 3-point range. Lowry was coming off a clutch 35-point performance in Game 7 vs. the Heat on Sunday in which he played 42 minutes, but he made it clear before Tuesday's game that he's healthy. "I feel great, my body feels great," Lowry said. "I feel like a million bucks. My mind's great. My body's great." His elbow has been an issue since late March, but Lowry should bounce back in a big way in Game 2.
