Nick Nurse said that Kyle Lowry should be close to returning from his current back injury.
Lowry missed four games with a thigh injury and returned for one game prior to Christmas, but emerged from the break with a back problem that's already cost him three games (Sunday included). It sounds like the Raptors are just being extra careful with Lowry here, and they have enough guard depth with Fred VanVleet and Delon Wright to be able to play it safe. FVV is a solid play whenever Lowry is out of action.
