Kyle Lowry PG TOR 8 Hrs
Kyle Lowry got back on track in Monday's loss to the Nets, scoring 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting (including four treys) with eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals.
Lowry entered tonight's game hitting just 27.1 percent over his last five games but that was bound to correct itself and it did just that tonight. He's been a top-10 play on the season and there's no reason it shouldn't continue down the stretch.

Kyle Lowry is shooting 27.1 percent from the field over his past five games, but after posting a triple-double on Sunday he vowed to "find [his] way out of it."
"Lately my shot has been off," said Lowry. "I've been in a crazy slump for me." It's telling that he was critical of himself after dropping 20 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists in a road victory, and beat writer Josh Lewenberg notes that Lowry's "passion, like his tenacity, has been contagious." He'll have plenty of opportunities to get his shot back on track, as the Raptors and Heat are the only teams with 16 games over the next four weeks.

Kyle Lowry recorded his fourth career triple-double on Sunday with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists as the Raptors earned a 111-104 win in Minnesota.
This was K-Low's second triple-double in an already remarkable 2013-14 season, and Joe Johnson's selection to the All-Star game over Lowry remains a clear injustice. Lowry made 9-of-10 free throws, sank one 3-pointer, and stole the ball twice to round out another elite fantasy performance.

Kyle Lowry (sprained ankle) shot just 3-of-13 from the field in Sunday's win, but his makes all came from downtown and he added three boards, eight assists and two steals in just 31 minutes.
He also jammed his thumb during the game, but continued to play and shouldn't be in any danger of missing Friday's game vs. the Kings. We'll let you know if his status changes. Toronto only plays twice next week, but they follow that with four consecutive four-game weeks.

Kyle Lowry (ankle) will start Sunday's game, as expected.
He'll have his hands full vs. Stephen Curry and the Warriors, but with Terrence Ross out there should be even more shot opportunities available for Lowry and DeMar DeRozan in the backcourt. Make sure he's in all active lineups.

Kyle Lowry (sprained ankle) was able to practice on Saturday.
He was due to be re-evaluated on Friday and this suggests that his ankle sprain isn't serious, after he played on the ankle through three OT periods on Thursday. Owners should tentatively expect to have him in the lineup vs. Golden State on Sunday, and we'll let you know when a definitive update arrives.

Kyle Lowry (right ankle) will be re-evaluated on Friday for his ankle sprain.
Coach Dwane Casey said Lowry turned his ankle badly and his should-be All-Star wanted to stay in the game. Lowry suffered his ankle sprain on the last play in regulation and he was clearly not at 100 percent in the three overtime periods. There's a good chance his ankle will swell up on him, so it makes some sense to add Greivis Vasquez for owners who have someone they can afford to cut.

Kyle Lowry suffered an apparent right ankle injury on the last play of regulation in Thursday's game and stayed in the game for overtime.
He drove the basket and came down awkwardly on his right ankle. Lowry was on the ground for a couple minutes, but did not miss time. He is limping through overtime and his ankle might swell up on him. The good news is the Raptors are off until Sunday.

Kyle Lowry hit just 3-of-15 shots and was 0-for-9 from downtown in Tuesday's win over the Cavaliers, finishing with 13 points, five rebounds, nine assists and a steal.
He hit 7-of-7 free throws to salvage his night, but this was a fantasy disaster. Lowry has been an absolute beast this season and the fact he didn't carve up the porous Cavs' D is disappointing. Look for him to bounce back on Thursday against John Wall and the Wizards.

Kyle Lowry made the Magic defense disappear on Sunday during a 105-90 victory, shooting 7-of-13 from the field for 28 points with four boards, six assists and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
He made 10 free throws for a season high, which was really his calling card earlier in his career. Lowry has shown some flashes earlier in his career with a breakout campaign with the Rockets back in 2010-11, but he's arguably a top five point guard in the NBA this season. Now that the deadline has past, only an injury can keep him down.
