                     === Raptors G Lowry out 1-2 weeks ===
 
 Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry is expected to
 miss the next 1-2 weeks with a bruised cuboid bone in his right foot, the team
 announced on Thursday.
 
 Lowry  sustained  the injury in  the second quarter  of last Tuesday's loss to
 Oklahoma  City  when he landed  awkwardly on the  foot of Thunder center Serge
 Ibaka. He has already missed the team's last four games.
 
 Lowry, acquired by the Raptors in a trade with Houston this past July, was off
 to  a strong start with his new team. Through Toronto's first three games, the
 26-year-old  was averaging  23.7 points,  7.3  rebounds, 7.0  assists and  3.7
 steals  per outing.  He had just two  points in 17 minutes before leaving last
 Tuesday's game.
 
 In  other  injury news,  forward/guard  Landry  Fields underwent  ulnar  nerve
 transposition surgery to address compression in his right elbow.
 
 Dr.  Andrew  Weiland performed the  surgery in New  York City on Wednesday. No
 timetable  has been  established for Fields' return and he will be re-assessed
 in two weeks.
 
 Fields, who signed a three-year deal with the Raptors in July, has started all
 five  games he  has appeared  in  this season,  averaging 2.4  points and  3.2
 rebounds per contest.
 
 Toronto  also announced  that guard/forward Alan Anderson has a partially torn
 plantar fascia in his left foot. He is estimated to be sidelined for 3-6 weeks
 as he rehabilitates the injury.
 
 Anderson  has  averaged 7.3 points,  1.9 rebounds  and 1.2 assists through six
 games this season.
