The Toronto Raptors have ruled out Kyle Lowry for Sunday night's game against the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Raptors coach Nick Nurse.

The 34-year-old Lowry is still battling a left thumb sprain he sustained in the first quarter of last Tuesday night's 124-113 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

On Friday, Nurse said he was expecting it might take a "couple more days" for Lowry to come back. There's been nothing on the X-Rays to suggest it's a major issue, just a "soft tissue thing," Nurse said.

The 76ers have listed Ben Simmons and Shake Milton as probable for Sunday's game.
