Raptors' Lowry sits out because of sore left knee
Lowry, averaging 17.4 points and 7.6 assists this season, was injured in a collision with LeBron James in the first half of Monday's loss at Miami. Lowry briefly stayed in the game before leaving in the second half.
Lowry has set career highs in 3-pointers (174) and steals (117). Between March 14-26, he scored at least 20 points in a career-best eight straight games for the Atlantic Division-leading Raptors, who recently clinched their first playoff berth in six seasons.
