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.
