Kyle Lowry will be out for rest Tuesday as his Toronto Raptors take on the Atlanta Hawks, the team has announced.

The veteran has missed eight of his team's past 10, taking the floor once in late March and last game against the New York Knicks, missing six games in between those two appearances while recovering from a toe infection.

He put up 19 points in 37 minutes of action Sunday. Tuesday's game against Atlanta is the first of a back-to-back, with the team facing DeMar DeRozan's San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday.

The Raptors announced Fred VanVleet and Jalen Harris are also out Tuesday, both dealing with hip injuries, while Paul Watson will now be out as he is still in health and safety protocols. DeAndre' Bembry will also miss the game with hamstring tightness.

Toronto heads into Tuesday's game having won three of their past 10, and currently sits 11th in the East with a 21-33 record.
