Toronto Raptors DFS Notes

Kyle Lowry finished Monday's loss in Houston with 17 points, eight assists, four rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 37 minutes. Lowry's play tonight is overshadowed by rampant rumors about the possibility of a trade. With the deadline fast approaching the Heat and Sixers are reportedly "leaders" in the hunt to acquire Lowry. It remains to be seen how many assets they'd give up for a 35-year-old on an expiring deal. Lowry will undoubtedly start wherever he finishes the season, though no other team may be willing to play him the 34.8 minutes per game he's enjoying with Toronto.
