Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry has undergone a procedure to repair a tendon injury in his left thumb.

Lowry is expected to be ready for this summer’s USA Basketball training camp and the FIBA World Cup, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 33-year-old suffered the injury during Game 7 of Toronto’s second-round series against the Philadelphia 76ers, but played through the pain and helped lead the Raptors to their first-ever NBA title.

In the 11 post-season contests following the injury, Lowry averaged 16.9 points, 5.8 assists and 4.5 rebounds.
