Today Shams Charania reported that point guard Kyle Lowry will be available for todays game vs Boston.

This comes after he left in game 4 vs the Nets with an ankle injury, and did not return to that game.

Lowry has been huge for the Raptors in the bubble as he helped the Raptors lock down the Nets backcourt.

He had multiple huge games in the seeding matches, which helped the Raptors hold on to the second seed.

Lowry carried the Raptors in a seeding game vs the Lakers, which they won by 20+ points.

His return is crucial for the Raptors. They like to make it hard for smaller PGs like Celtics PG Kemba Walker, and cannot do that with Kyle Lowry.
