Raptors get positive news on Kyle Lowry's injury
Point guard will wear splint on left ring finger, but will be ready for season
Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry will wear a splint on his left ring finger for the next few weeks, but the team says he will be available to play when the regular season starts Wednesday.
Lowry injured his finger in Wednesday's 108-72 pre-season win over Memphis. He has a follow-up examination Thursday in Toronto and did not accompany the team to Milwaukee for Friday's pre-season finale.
Despite the injury the team says Lowry will be able to participate in practices and play in games.
Lowry looked impressive in the win over Memphis, with five rebounds and 10 assists in 26:17 of playing time.
The Raptors open the regular season Wednesday at Air Canada Centre versus the Boston Celtics.
