Kyle Lowry injury update: Raptors guard (back) to return vs. Pacers

Kyle Lowry is set to return to the Raptors after a six-game hiatus.

The Raptors point guard has been out for 10 of the team’s last 11 games and hasn’t played since Dec. 22 because of lower back soreness. But, according to TSN Sports, Lowry will play against the Pacers on Sunday in Toronto.

Toronto beat the Bucks without Lowry, but they aren’t at full strength without him. He’s averaging 14.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 9.8 assists in his 13th NBA season.

The Pacers are just behind the Raptors in the Eastern Conference standings, coming in at third with a 26-12 record. Indiana’s last loss came against Toronto, and it has been on a six-game winning streak since then.
