According to an official statement released by the franchise on Monday afternoon, the Toronto Raptors will be without starting point guard Kyle Lowry for at least the remainder of the 2016-2017 regular season.
On Monday, the team announced that Lowry will undergo surgery "to remove loose bodies" from his right wrist and aims to return in time for the playoffs.
The Raptors are 35-24 and tied with the Wizards for third place in the Eastern Conference standings. Whether or not you can continue to roster Lowry will depend on whether you have an IR-spot, and how long your fantasy season goes, but 4-5 weeks rules Lowry out for the rest of the fantasy season some formats.
