The Toronto Raptors are expecting to have Kyle Lowry back for Wednesday night's game against the Miami Heat. The 34-year-old guard is listed as probable with a left thumb injury, according to Raptors PR.

Lowry has missed the past four games with a thumb injury he suffered in the first half against the Milwaukee Bucks last Tuesday.

"There is a chance [Lowry is back], I think a good chance," Nurse said Tuesday after the loss to the Philadelphia 76ers game. "I probably would have thought he’d be back in by now considering, but they’re telling me there’s a good chance he plays tomorrow."

In Lowry's absence, the team recalled rookie point guard Malachi Flynn from the G-League Bubble to serve in his place.

Tuesday's loss marked the first time Toronto has lost without Lowry in their last 16 games without the six-time All-Star.

Tyler Herro and Goran Dragic are both listed as questionable for Wednesday night while Avery Bradley and Meyers Leonard remain out.
