The Toronto Raptors will welcome back Kyle Lowry for Wednesday night's game against the Miami Heat
Publish date:

The Toronto Raptors will have point guard Kyle Lowry back in the lineup Wednesday night against the Miami Heat.

The 34-year-old Lowry has missed four straight games with a left thumb injury he suffered in the first half against the Milwaukee Bucks last Tuesday.

His return will force a lineup shuffle for Raptors coach Nick Nurse who will likely send DeAndre' Bembry back to the bench and continue Toronto's small-ball trend with Lowry, Fred VanVleet, Norman Powell, Pascal Siakam, and OG Anunoby as the starting unit.

The Miami Heat will have Goran Dragic in the lineup after a nine game absence. Tyler Herro remains out with a right hip contusion.
