Kyle Lowry erupted for a season-high 40 points against the Wolves during a 115-109 loss on Saturday, adding five rebounds, five assists and six 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
Advice: Surprisingly, this was just his second 30-point game of the season, and also just the first time he's topped 20 in back-to-back games since November. Lowry has also been bombing 3-pointers lately with 9.6 attempts per game over his last three, making 4.7 of them. He's at his best when his jumper is falling, so we could see Lowry go on a heater.

Advice: That's more like it. Lowry hit just 8-of-30 shots in his previous two games since returning from his back injury, but he looked more like himself tonight. He added three rebounds, three assists, one block, one steal and four triples, helping the Raptors snap their four-game losing streak against the Spurs. He did play 35 minutes tonight, so we'll see how his back responds on the second night of a back-to-back set vs. the Wolves.

Advice: Lowry avoided punishment for his MLK-Day confrontation with Ben Simmons, which is fortunate for everyone involved. He went 5-of-14 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line tonight, which is a step in the right direction, and it looks like his bruised tailbone is no longer an issue.
Lowry plans to play Monday after missing a third straight game Saturday with a bruised tailbone.
Advice: Lowry was hurt while going for an offensive rebound when he flipped backward over the Nets' Quincy Acy. He got up and went back down with pain in both his back and legs, so much so that teammates trying to carry him off the court had to stop because it appeared Lowry was hurting too much.
Kyle Lowry (tailbone) said he's planning to play on Monday vs. the 76ers.
Advice: Barring a setback in warmups, Lowry will be back in the starting lineup after a three-game absence. Delon Wright would return to the bench if Lowry plays, but he'll still have some value as a combo guard off the bench with Toronto playing four times this week. Fred VanVleet has been on fire lately, but he loses most of his streaming appeal with Lowry back.
Kyle Lowry (back) struggled with his shot on Monday, scoring 13 points on 3-of-16 shooting to go with one triple, seven boards, four assists, three steals and four turnovers in 37 minutes.
Advice: While Lowry couldn’t get his shot to drop, he was out there for quality minutes and fell fairly hard on his tailbone a few times without needing to take any plays off, so hopefully, the bruised tailbone will be a non-issue moving forward. He did get ejected from the game with six seconds left after exchanging some choice words with Ben Simmons, and reportedly got into it with Simmons in the hallway after the game, so he could be looking at a suspension here.
Kyle Lowry (back) will start on Monday vs. the 76ers.
Advice: He's officially back after a three-game absence. The Raptors wanted to see him warm up before activating him, so expect them to keep a close eye on him during this game. Delon Wright will head back to the bench, but he was playing really well as a reserve before Lowry's injury. Fred VanVleet is likely the biggest loser in terms of fantasy value.
