Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry won't suit up against the Los Angeles Clippers due to lower back stiffness, the team announced prior to tip-off Tuesday night.

The six-time all-star joins OG Anunoby (left calf injury recovery), Chris Boucher (left knee) and Paul Watson Jr. (left knee) on the sidelines.

Lowry went off for 37 points and dished out 11 assists in the Raptors' last game, a decisive 121-114 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Raptors are hoping to keep their slim post-season hopes alive as they wrap up a tough West Coast swing against the Clippers.
