    Kyle Lowry (left thumb surgery) said that he will be ready to go for opening night.

    Lowry, who will turn 34 in March, also said that he feels better than ever and credited that to how he takes care of his body. The Raptors are going to need Lowry to be a scorer this year, and he will have every opportunity to do so.

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb surgery) will not play in Sunday's preseason game versus the Bulls.

    It seems that Lowry is still not ready, but the upgraded questionable tag earlier in the day shows that he is well on his way. Lowry will be looking to absorb some of the usage left behind from Kawhi Leonard and should be considered questionable going forward.

    The Raptors will rest Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka and Norman Powell for Sunday's preseason game versus the Bulls.

    Kyle Lowry will also sit this one out as his surgically repaired thumb needs a little more time. The reserves will get plenty of run and will be they are all in play as DFS candidates.

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb surgery) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's preseason game versus the Bulls.

    Lowry has yet to play in a preseason game so being upgraded to questionable is big. Ideally, the Raptors would like him to log some time before the opener.

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb surgery) will miss Thursday's game vs. the Rockets as he continues to rehab.

    This news doesn't come as a surprise as Lowry is likely to miss most of preseason as a result of the surgery. It is more important for the 14-year veteran to be ready for the regular season. He is being targeted between the 3rd and 6th round of fantasy drafts.

    Kyle Lowry is expected to miss the Raptors second preseason game against the Rockets on Thursday, as he continues to rehab his surgically repaired left thumb.

    Lowry, who had an operation to repair damaged ligaments in his left thumb earlier this summer, is yet to be cleared by doctors. Fresh off signing a one-year, $31 million contract extension, Lowry is expected to be healthy for the start of the season.

    Kyle Lowry and the Raptors have agreed to a one-year, $31 million contract extension.

    Lowry was set to hit free agency after this season but he'll be back with the Raptors for at least another year. Last season's run cemented him as the greatest Raptor of all time so it's not surprising that everyone was on board to extend the relationship. It was expected that this year would serve as a passing of the torch to Fred VanVleet, so we'll have to see how that dynamic changes. VanVleet, who will be a free agent this summer, now has a more difficult path to a starting point guard job in Toronto, though he could very well start next to Lowry at shooting guard.

    Kyle Lowry (thumb) will not suit up for Tuesday's preseason matchup with the Rockets in Japan.

    Lowry isn't cleared to return just yet, though it's expected that he will be when the Raptors get back from Tokyo. Marc Gasol, who has been on a load management schedule after a very busy summer, will be active for Toronto's exhibition opener. We're not worried about either veteran when it comes to playing in the regular season, and both make for fine middle-round targets in fantasy drafts.

    Nick Nurse updated on Thursday that Kyle Lowry (left thumb) expects to be cleared to practice after the team returns from Tokyo.

    As a veteran of the league, this isn't that unexpected. We don't really need to see much from Lowry for him to be ready to roll for the season. It's much more imperative that the Raptors have him at full strength for opening tip off.

    Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol will not play in Thursday's open scrimmage.

    It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the two oldest players on the Raptors roster will sit out of this open scrimmage. The team already knows what they have in these veterans so they are choosing to give their younger players more run before any meaningful games. Lowry also had surgery in the offseason to repair his left thumb tendon while Gasol played as much basketball as he has in any given year with the team playing into June and his participation in the FIBA World Cup. They should both be ready to go to start the regular season but may continue to miss time this preseason as a precautionary measure.

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb surgery) has yet to be cleared to participate fully in practice.

    At this point Lowry does not have a timetable and the plan is to ease him back slowly during practices. Lowry will be looking at a larger offensive role this season with Kawhi Leonard leaving for the Clippers, but it could have a negative impact on his percentages.

    According to Sean Deveney of the Sporting News, teams that have reached out to the Raptors about acquiring Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol have been turned down.

    The Raptors reportedly don't plan on tanking to rebuild and coming off of a championship season who can blame them. They've still got a competitive roster and if Pascal Siakam is able to take the next step who knows what they can achieve this season.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Kyle Lowry withdrew from Team USA camp.

    Lowry had surgery to repair his left thumb tendon in mid-July so he has been unable to take part in scrimmages for Team USA. Lowry will choose to forgo the tournament in the hopes that it will allow him more rest and recovery before the start of the regular season. With this news, Team USA is left with three point guards: Kemba Walker, De'Aaron Fox and Derrick White.

    Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated is reporting that Kyle Lowry would like to remain with the Raptors long-term and is open to an extension, but that the two sides have yet to discuss his future.

    Lowry is heading into his age-34 season and will be a free agent at the end of the season. With the Raptors looking ready to re-tool around Pascal Siakam, they might not have interest in Lowry unless he's willing to take a pay cut and reduced role in the future. With a championship secured, Lowry may be more amenable to those terms as he declines, though negotiations could get contentious of he delivers another All-Star season. Look for Lowry to return early-middle round fantasy value as usual.

    Kyle Lowry (left thumb surgery) will meet with doctors in the coming days and still wants to play in the upcoming FIBA World Cup.

    Lowry is hoping to practice with his Team USA teammates next week, though it remains to be seen if he's cleared for activity. Despite the injury, Lowry delivered in a big way over the final two rounds of the postseason, and the fact that he's so intent on suiting up for international play means there really shouldn't be much concern about his availability for the regular season.
