When the Toronto Raptors will face Kyle Lowry and the Miami Heat in the 2021-22 NBA season

It's time to break out the calendars.

On Friday, the NBA revealed every team's schedule for the 2021-22 season. You know what that means - we now know when the Toronto Raptors will face Kyle Lowry for the first time as a member of the Miami Heat.

And that date is Monday, Jan. 17 at 7:30 p.m. ET in Miami. The Raptors will see Lowry and the Heat a second time on Jan. 29 at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Lowry's return to Toronto, meanwhile, is set for Thursday, Feb. 3 at 7:30 p.m. ET. at Scotiabank Arena, a night that will surely be an emotional one.

With the NBA going back to an 82-game schedule, the Raptors and Heat will meet four times next season with the last matchup coming on April 3 at 7:00 p.m. ET.

The Heat acquired Lowry in a sign-and-trade with the Raptors this offseason. It brings an end to a nine-year run with the franchise, in which Lowry earned six All-Star selections and one All-NBA Third Team selection, in addition to playing a leading role in the Raptors winning the franchise's first-ever championship in 2019.

Following Toronto's title run,'s Carlan Gay voted Lowry as the greatest Raptors of all time.

Lowry penned an emotional farewell on Instagram shortly after signing with the Heat. He later talked about how emotional his return to Toronto will be while speaking with the media.

"I'm not looking forward to that first game coming back because I know there will be a tribute and I know I'm going to cry," Lowry said. "So I'm not looking forward to it."
