Beyond The Buzzer:
Kyle Lowry has played in 16 of the Raptors first 28 games where he’s averaged 15.8 points, 5.8 assists and 5.6 rebounds a game. Lowry has yet to return from a tear in his right triceps that had him slated to miss 10 days on December 12.
Though he’s out now injured, the Raptors supposedly would like to put Kyle Lowry in a trade package and keep Jose Calderon. The Raptors give up 11 more points per game when Lowry is on the court compared with Calderon.
