Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry turned his left ankle in the first quarter of Game 4 against the Brooklyn Nets and will not return to action.
Update: Will not return. https://t.co/mldWg38Cb5- Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) August 23, 2020
Lowry took an awkward step on Nets guard Chris Chiozza's foot while pushing the ball up the court and his ankle turned, leaving the All-Star guard hobbling. He tried to play through it at first but quickly realized he would not be able to, committing a foul to stop play and check out of the game.
The severity of the injury is still to be determined, though the Raptors could be playing it safe with a 3-0 series lead. Lowry finished the game with two points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in just nine minutes of play.
