Kyle Lowry (back) is doubtful for Thursday's game.
Lowry remained out at practice on Wednesday and it looks like he'll miss this much-anticipated matchup with the Spurs. While yesterday's reports of Lowry receiving a back injection are mildly concerning, the hope is still that he can return quickly now that his injury is becoming a matter of pain tolerance. He reportedly responded well to shooting jumpers yesterday, which is a good sign. Fred VanVleet is going to be worth using for the length of Lowry's absence.
