Lowry finished with averages of 17.8 points (41% FG, 34% 3Pt, 81% FT), 4.7 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.6 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 35 minutes per game during 70 regular season games.

Lowry was among the top fantasy performers in the league during the first couple months of the season. However, a laundry list of injuries (finger, back, hip, leg) ultimately helped derail his year. Lowry managed only 12.3 points (32% FG, 22% 3Pt, 73% FT), 5.5 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 1.3 steals in 33 minutes per game during four playoff games versus the Wizards.

Lowry had to sit out most of the second quarter after picking up three early fouls, two of them against John Wall. Lowry had a disappointing series against the Wiz, as the Raptors were swept and he shot just 31.6 percent from the floor while picking up a combined 18 fouls in the four games.

Lowry will start Saturday's game in Miami, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Lowry is slated to direct the offense in both ends of the Raptors' current back-to-back set, which should be a great test for his postseason conditioning. While he will likely log less than the 33 minutes he earned Friday, he'll attempt to replicated his line of 10 points (4-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, and seven assists.

Lowry (back) posted 10 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists in 33 minutes of action Friday against the Magic. He had missed seven games prior to Friday's return.

Lowry has been struggling to stay healthy, playing just one game over his previous ten contests. He's able to contribute across the board, but he hasn't been able to help owners during the fantasy playoffs. As the season comes to a close, he may have a couple more good games left in the tank, but much of his energy will be reserved for the NBA playoffs, thus limiting his fantasy value.
