Raptors’ Lowry officially out for Wednesday, day-to-day after

Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry drives between Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace in NBA game in New York

When Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry crumpled on the floor in pain following rolling his ankle Tuesday night (stepping on the foot of OKC’s Serge Ibaka), him not playing Wednesday against the Mavericks seemed a pretty likely outcome.

Officially, the team has said Lowry is out for the game, which means a lot of of Jose Calderon and John Lucas III in his absence.

But he will be missed — Lowry has averaged 18.3 points per game on 54.5 percent shooting, plus dishes out better than six assists a game. He has been amazing, and behind him the Raptors offense has been swill.

Which means bigger question is how many other games he might miss. The Raptors also are saying “day-to-day” but we have no timeline yet. We don’t know how bad things really are. After this game the Raptors are off until Saturday when they host the 76ers.

We will see if he can return by then.
