Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry upgraded to probable ahead of Game 1 against Boston Celtics

Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry was listed as questionable for Sunday's Game 1 against the Boston Celtics on Saturday morning's injury report.

Lowry has since been upgraded to probable.

Lowry is currently dealing with a left ankle sprain that he suffered in Game 4 of Toronto's first-round series with the Brooklyn Nets. While the Raptors announced that Lowry's "condition will be updated as appropriate," it was reported earlier this week that he is considered to be "day-to-day."

The good news for the Raptors: Lowry practiced on Saturday and "looked OK," according to head coach Nick Nurse.

Lowry has been a big part of Toronto's success this season. He averaged 19.4 points, 7.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game during the regular season, numbers that helped him earn his sixth straight All-Star appearance. As our Carlan Gay detailed, he also has a strong case to make an All-Defensive Team for the first time in his career.

If Lowry is unable to play in Game 1, Norman Powell, who averaged 18.7 points per game as a starter this season, could replace him in the starting lineup.

Game 1 between the Raptors and Celtics has been rescheduled for 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 30.
