Coach Dwane Casey feels Kyle Lowry’s high usage and minutes are a concern for the Raptors.
“It’s a big concern. We watch it. We try to keep it down as much as we can, but at the same time we’re trying to win games,” Dwane Casey said about Lowry’s minutes. Lowry has been enjoying an excellent start to the season and he’s been healthy as a bonus. This obviously makes him a hard player to bench when the team is trying to win close games. “We’ve been trying to cut my minutes down,” Lowry said. “Whenever [the coaches] want me to sit down I’ma do it, but right now I love to play the game of basketball, man.” Even though he may see his playing time monitored more closely, it won’t affect his fantasy value too greatly.
