Kyle Lowry out at least two weeks with left thumb fracture
The Toronto Raptors will be without guard Kyle Lowry for at least the next two weeks after he suffered a left thumb fracture.
Lowry injured his thumb Friday against the New Orleans Pelicans. He’ll be reevaluated in two weeks, according to ESPN’s Rachel Nichols.
A specialist has diagnosed Toronto’s Kyle Lowry with a fracture of the distal phalanx of his left thumb – he’ll be reevaluated in two weeks. One of the nights he’ll miss will be Monday’s game vs Kawhi Leonard’s Clippers.

Lowry will miss a West Coast road trip, including games against both the Clippers and Lakers. He’ll also have to be rushed back in order to play against the Philadelphia 76ers on Nov. 25.
The point guard is a significant loss for Toronto. He was averaging 21.8 points and 6.5 assists per game this season. He underwent surgery on the same thumb during the offseason, but there is no indication that the two injuries are connected in any way.
