    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry scored a team-high 21 points during Friday's victory against the 76ers.
    Insight: He was just 5-of-14 from the field, but 8-of-8 from the line as well. Lowry also had five rebounds, five assists, three 3-pointers, three steals, and one turnover.
     
    1/21/2015 10:52:00 PM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry had 20 points and eight rebounds during Wednesday's loss against the Grizzlies.
    Insight: He also had three assists, two 3-pointers, two steals, one block, and three turnovers. Lowry has been great this season and is a top-20 player.
     
    1/19/2015 10:31:00 PM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry carried the Raptors to a, 92-89, victory over the Bucks on Monday.
    Insight: With fellow guard DeMar DeRozan back in the lineup, Lowry's fantasy value has taken a major hit. In the three games since DeRozan returned, Lowry has averaged just 13.0 ppg. DeRozan, however, really struggled versus the Bucks, so Lowry took 25 shots and led the team with 18 points. It will be interesting to see how these two continue to work together in the second half of the season.
     
    Cold1/18/2015 11:04:00 AM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry is averaging just 13 ppg over his last three starts and shooting just 35 percent from the field.
    Insight: Lowry has played at an All-Star level this season, averaging 20.3 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 7.8 apg, 1.6 spg, but it's no coincidence that his scoring has dropped with the return of DeMar DeRozan. Lowry could be a sell-high candidate.
     
    1/14/2015 10:08:00 PM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry had a double-double in the victory on Wednesday.
    Insight: DeMar DeRozan returned to the lineup, but it didn't really effect Lowry and shouldn't moving forward. Lowry won't have as many scoring opportunities, but his assist numbers should go up. He had 12 assists to go with 18 points on Wednesday. Lowry also had seven rebounds and four 3-pointers.
     
    1/10/2015 10:04:00 PM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry had 19 points and seven assists in the, 109-96, victory over the Celtics on Saturday.
    Insight: Lowry was 7-for-17, including 3-for-8 from the 3-point line. He also had five rebounds. With DeMar DeRozan coming back soon, Lowry will see a slight decrease in production, but he should continue his stellar season overall.
     
    1/8/2015 10:06:00 PM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry scored a team-high 24 points during Thursday's loss against the Hornets.
    Insight: He did not shoot well, hitting just 7-of-22 from the field, but did go 6-of-7 from the line and 4-of-10 from deep. Lowry also had seven assists, seven rebounds, one block, and three turnovers.
     
    12/31/2014 1:36:00 PM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry scored 25 points in Tuesday's loss.
    Insight: Lowry went 10-of-26 from the field and contributed with seven rebounds, five assists and three steals. Lowry continues to be a top fantasy option, particularly with teammate DeMar DeRozan still sidelined. Lowry has averaged 27.2 ppg, 7.0 apg and 5.4 rpg over the last five games.
     
    12/27/2014 6:04:00 PM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry scored 25 points in the, 110-98, victory over the Clippers on Saturday.
    Insight: Lowry shot 9-of-17 from the field, including 3-for-7 from the 3-point line. He also had seven assists, three rebounds and three steals. The weakest point of Lowry's game continues to be free-throw shooting, but he did go 4-for-5 on Saturday at the line.
     
    12/22/2014 10:55:00 PM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry scored 34 points in the, 129-120, loss to the Bulls on Monday.
    Insight: Lowry shot 12-of-22, including 4-for-8 from the 3-point line. He also had six rebounds, three assists and a steal, but he did shoot just 60 percent from the line.
     
    12/21/2014 6:33:00 PM

    12/17/2014 10:30:00 PM

    12/9/2014 9:31:00 PM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry didn't shoot well in Tuesday's loss to the Cavaliers, but still produced for fantasy owners.
    Insight: He was 6-of-18 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line for 16 points, 14 assists, four rebounds, two 3-pointers, and one steal. Lowry is a great option at point guard.
     
    12/8/2014 10:33:00 PM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry shot just 3-for-13 but did dish 13 assists against the Nuggets on Monday as Toronto won in overtime.
    Insight: Lowry had a double-double with 13 points and 13 assists. He shot 7-of-8 from the free-throw line to help his numbers. It was nice to see someone else score for Toronto without DeMar DeRozan in the lineup.
     
    12/3/2014 9:36:00 AM
    Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry scored a team-high 27 points, along with 13 assists in Tuesday's win over the Kings.
