TORONTO (AP) — The Toronto Raptors say all-star guard Kyle Lowry will miss a second straight game with a sprained right ankle when the Oklahoma City Thunder visit Soctiabank Arena on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time).
Lowry was injured in Toronto’s 128-92 win over the Knicks on Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) when New York rookie center Mitchell Robinson fell on Lowry’s ankle. Lowry, who had just returned after missing two games with a left ankle injury, had to be helped to the locker room.
He missed Toronto’s 132-114 overtime victory at Oklahoma City on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time).
The 32-year-old Lowry will miss his 15th game this season due to back, hip and ankle injuries. He is averaging 14.8 points and 9.0 assists per game.
