Toronto Raptors star Kyle Lowry will miss between seven and 10 days because of an infection in his toe.

"It's not going very well," Raptors head coach Nick Nurse told reporters prior to Wednesday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

This is the second time this season that Lowry has missed time for a toe infection. The six-time All-Star missed two games in January for the first.

The 35-year-old is averaging 17.0 points, a team-high 7.3 assists and 5.4 rebounds per game for the Raptors.

Lowry has missed his fair share of action this season, most of which stemmed from a sprained left ankle he suffered against the Milwaukee Bucks in February. He missed four games with that injury.

The Villanova product was ruled out of a March 28 contest against the Portland Trail Blazers due to right foot soreness.

Toronto has lost 14 of its last 16 games and is currently 11th in the Eastern Conference standings with an 18-29 record.
