Speaking to reporters in Quebec City on Wednesday, Raptors coach Nick Nurse said the five-time all-star will visit the surgeon in New York and likely then get his clearance afterwards.
Lowry had surgery to repair a tendon injury in his left thumb in mid-July. As a result of the procedure, the 33-year-old was forced to withdraw from Team USA and the FIBA World Cup.
At camp thus far, Lowry’s been a limited participant and has been withheld from contact portions of practices.
It’s unclear at the moment how or even if this injury might affect Lowry’s status for the Oct. 22 season opener at home against the New Orlean Pelicans.
