Lowry (thumb) will be re-evaluated in two weeks, Rachel Richols of ESPN reports.
Lowry has been diagnosed with a fracture of the distal phalanx of his left thumb. For the next two weeks, and possibly longer, the Raptors will have to dig into their backcourt depth. Fred VanVleet should see more point guard duties, while Norman Powell, Terence Davis and Matt Thomas could all see upticks in workload.

Lowry was officially diagnosed with a left thumb fracture by a specialist Saturday. While the initial diagnosis states that he'll be re-evaluated in two weeks, there's a good chance Lowry ultimately missed a longer period.
