    Kyle Lowry had a rough night from the floor on Monday, shooting just 3-for-15 on his way to 11 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

    Lowry has missed time, but he's quietly having one of his best seasons while putting up second-round value again. Norman Powell started next to Lowry for Fred VanVleet and had 17 points, four rebounds, three assist, two steals and one triple.

    Kyle Lowry scored 26 points with six rebounds and five assists in a loss to the Sixers on Sunday.

    Lowry shot 7-of-14 from the field and 4-of-8 from beyond the arc. He played a team-high 38 minutes as well, which could be due in some part to Fred VanVleet exiting the game early with an injury. Lowry and VanVleet have been one of the better backcourt duos to own in fantasy as they are both inside top-20 value.

    Kyle Lowry had another strong game on Thursday with 19 points on 5-of-8 shooting to go with five boards, eight dimes, a steal and three 3-pointers.

    Lowry was on a tear before hurting his thumb and he's already back to speed. He logged 42 minutes which is actually a bit worrisome as the heavy minutes can really wear a guy like him down. If Coach Nurse continues to work him this hard, you may want to consider the injury risk you take with a guy like him, even though the production is undeniable.

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb fracture) returned from an 11-game absence and put up 12 points on 2-of-18 shooting (0-for-11 from deep), six rebounds, 11 assists, a steal and a block in 41 minutes in a 110-121 overtime loss to the Heat on Tuesday.

    Yikes. The shooting is concerning since the injury was on his hand, but the high minutes and assists are encouraging. Hopefully it'll just take him a few games to settle his shot since he clearly has his endurance back already. Fred VanVleet shifted to shooting guard and provided 19 points, one board, six dimes, three swipes and three treys in 43 minutes.

    Kyle Lowry (thumb fracture) will play and start against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Lowry is returning from an extended absence against the Heat in what will be a battle against the current two and three seeds in the East. Norman Powell will head back to a reserve role off the bench. Get Lowry back into your lineups.

    The Raptors have upgraded Kyle Lowry (thumb) to questionable to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    If Lowry can go, he will bump Norman Powell from the starting five and take some of the ball-handling responsibilities away from Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam. His status should be made more apparent as we inch closer to game time.

    Kyle Lowry is doubtful for Tuesday's game due to a left thumb fracture.

    Consider Norman Powell a quality short-term addition. Lowry is having an excellent start to the season and has shot 42.6 percent on threes so far.

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb fracture) was able to practice on Monday and is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

    Lowry was listed as doubtful before Sunday's game so his condition continues to improve. He figures to return to the starting five immediately upon returning, though he may face minutes restrictions for a few games. Regardless, be prepared to get Lowry back into all lineups. Norman Powell and Terence Davis should see their minutes reduced.

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb fracture) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Jazz.

    He was doubtful coming in, but Lowry seems to be inching closer and closer to returning. Norman Powell will continue to start until Lowry is healthy, while Fred VanVleet runs point.

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb fracture) is being listed as doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Jazz.

    The doubtful tag is a move in the right direction. Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said that he expects Lowry to make his return soon and if it's not tomorrow keep on eye on next Tuesday's game versus the Heat. Norman Powell would be shifted back to a bench role once Lowry is healthy enough to play.

    According to head coach Nick Nurse, Kyle Lowry is on schedule to return in a week and he is estimating a return for December 1st.

    The Raptors have been operating fine without Lowry, but can certainly use another talented body on their thin roster. When Lowry does return it will take some value away from Fred VanVleet and will probably make Norman Powell irrelevant for 12-team leagues.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet scored 24 points on 8-of-18 shooting, adding four 3's, five rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Saturday's 102-110 loss to the Mavericks.

    VanVleet continues to get the green-light in teammate Kyle Lowry's absence and is able to generate plenty of shooting opportunities. The increased ball-handling opportunity is also a huge boon for his fantasy stock as he is averaging a career high 7.6 assists per game. Fantasy owners should continue to play VanVleet indiscriminately even when Lowry returns.

    Norman Powell was hot from the field tonight, scoring 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting while adding a career-high six 3's to go along with six rebounds, an assist and steal in Saturday's loss to the Mavericks.

    After a frigid game three nights ago against the Blazers, Powell woke up and was incredibly efficient from behind the arc. The six 3's are a career high and the Raptors relied on his shot tonight. He will continue to provide value for fantasy owners while teammate Kyle Lowry remains out with injury.

    Kyle Lowry is out a couple weeks at minimum as he recovers from his left thumb fracture, according to head coach Nick Nurse.

    A couple of weeks at a minimum does not tell us much in terms of how far out this timeline will get, but if the Raptors want to be careful with their star point guard it could linger over a month. Fred VanVleet will get all of the touches he can handle in Lowry's absence, and Norman Powell is getting the first crack at replacing Lowry in the starting lineup. In general, all of the Raptors will be asked to pick up the slack, as this team was already thin before the injury.

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb fracture) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    For all the medics out there, Rachel Nichols is reporting that Lowry suffered a fracture of the distal phalanx of his left thumb. It appears the injury isn't too serious and Lowry should be ok after wearing a splint for a few weeks. In the meantime, it seems Fred VanVleet will assume point guard duties with Norman Powell sliding into the starting lineup if you need points and triples.
