The ailment forced Lowry to miss Wednesday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to Toronto head coach Nick Nurse.

Lowry, 35, scored 10 points on 3 of 8 shooting in 24 minutes during Toronto’s 118-104 road loss to the Detroit Pistons on Monday. He did not play in Toronto’s 122-117 home loss Sunday against the Portland Trail Blazers because of right foot soreness.
