The Raptors have had a rough start to the season, winning just two of their first eight games. Lowry leads the team in steals (3.0 per game) and is also averaging 18.3 points, 6.3 assists and 5.8 rebounds per game.

There's no need for the Raptors to rush him back this early in the season. There's no reason to start worrying over this in Toronto just yet.

While there was a hope that Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry would be able to return to the lineup Monday against the Utah Jazz after rolling his ankle, the news from the team is not positive.

The Toronto Raptors media relations Twitter is reporting that Lowry will not play Monday night:

According to the Toronto Raptors official media relations Twitter account, Kyle Lowry will miss Saturday's game vs. Philadelphia because of his sprained ankle. 

Lowry is a major loss for a team that is 1-4 to start the season. His penetration and overall offensive ability will be missed against the 76ers at home. But at this early juncture of the season, it's better to rest and wait until fully healthy.
