Miami Heat rule out Kyle Lowry for Monday's game vs. Raptors

Watch as Alvin Williams joins Eric Thomas to discuss the influence Kyle Lowry has had on the current Raptors' roster, how Fred VanVleet's leadership is giving the team energy, and why they are only as good as their best players.

The Miami Heat have ruled out point guard Kyle Lowry for Monday's game against the Toronto Raptors for personal reasons.

The Heat have listed Lowry out for Monday night's game against the visiting Raptors for personal reasons.

It would have been Lowry's first game against his former team since he was acquired by Miami this past off-season.

The Raptors are scheduled to play in Miami again on Jan. 29. The Heat are slated to play in Toronto on Feb. 1, but there could potentially be no fans at that game if the Ontario government decides to extend its COVID-19 regulations around capacity limits at large events.

Miami's Bam Adebayo, who was expected to return on Monday from thumb surgery that has kept him out six weeks, is also listed as questionable.

Adebayo was averaging 18.7 points and 10.2 rebounds before his thumb injury.
