Kyle Lowry says he's 'doubtful' for Sunday

TORONTO (AP) All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry says he's doubtful to play for Toronto on Sunday in Game 4 of the Raptors' Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Lowry has a sprained left ankle. He attempted to warm up before Game 3 on Friday before the determination was made that he could not play.

Lowry said trying to play likely made the ankle worse.

The Raptors trail the series 3-0. No team in NBA history has successfully rallied from such a deficit.

''Hopefully some things change, but right now I don't think I'll be able to play,'' Lowry said.

Lowry was getting more treatment Saturday, adding that he's not ''giving up hope'' of being ready to attempt playing in Game 4.
