He was forced to the bench in the second quarter with three fouls Tuesday and it coincided with a lineup switch Wizards coach Randy Wittman used, going small to spread the floor with Pierce at power forward, which led to scores in 14 of the last 17 first-half possessions in the stretch that decided the game. "I've got to figure out a way to stay on the floor," Lowry said afterward. "I feel s----- right now." ESPN.com

But this time, Lowry won’t be satisfied if the Raptors come up short again, even if encouraging hugs and uplifting cheers are sure to follow. “We want to play as long as possible and if we lose in the first round, I think I will be really disappointed,” Lowry said. Washington Post

Josh Lewenberg: Lowry has already been ruled out for tonight's game vs CHI. No surprise there. Wouldn't expect to see him again in March, at the minimum Twitter @JLew1050

The Minnesota Timberwolves duo are playing their first game in Canada as NBA teammates on Wednesday against the Toronto Raptors as part of Canada Basketball night. Before the game, they posed for a picture with Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Alas, in an embarrasing gaffe, the PMO's official Twitter tagged Bennett — whose Twitter handle is the really confusing @anthonybennett, not even an underscore — but identified him Kyle Lowry, the Raptors point guard, who is from Philadelphia.

Lowry will sit out a second consecutive game for rest on Monday when his Toronto Raptors take on the Philadelphia 76ers, and it sounds as if that absence could extend for multiple games to help the struggling point guard remedy multiple minor issues. Lowry sitting on Saturday, the second night of a back-to-back against a lowly New York Knicks team, was wholly justifiable, even if the Raptors did drop an embarrassing decision at MSG. A chance to sit against the equally uninspiring 76ers is fortunate timing, too, but an extended absence would leave the Raptors far less hope of emerging from their five-game losing streak and general malaise in an expeditious manner.

Ryan Wolstat: Kyle Lowry was getting stretched out in room instead of shooting around with Raptors. Take of that what you will. Lowry out tonight and from the way he is talking, (speculation here) could be a few more too. Said bigger things down the line are priority. Lowry said a bunch of things are bothering him. He would play through but said org smartly thinking long-term and it is right call. Lowry said not easy to sit at home but: “(They’ve) seen me enough this year and I think my family and friends understand the bigger plan. The long term is the plan, the long term for our season is really the goal in mind.” Twitter @WolstatSun

Today's player pool somewhat thin at the top, but several mid-to-upper-tier assets are worth the Saturday start. Eric Bledsoe ($7,100 salary; 14.2% of cap) is coming off a 65.3-fantasy-point domination of Oklahoma City, and he scored at least 37 on FantasyScore in each of the three games before that. He's hottest guard option in the pool. Conversely, Kyle Lowry ($8,000; 16.0%) is coming off a miserable 5.5-point showing and has touched 30 fantasy points just three times in 10 games. He faces a good matchup against the New York Knicks, but he's clearly struggling. HoopsHype

Asked to describe his game at the moment, Lowry had a quick response: “Me? I’m trash,” Lowry told reporters. “I’m trying to figure it out right now, to be honest with you. I don’t know (how to fix it), that’s why I’m in here, working hard and trying to figure out what to do to get myself back on track.” Toronto Sun
