Three-time All-Star Kyle Lowry has been ruled out for the Toronto Raptors' marquee matchup against the Golden State Warriors.

It's the third straight absence for the point guard, who took a hard fall in last Monday's overtime victory over the Brooklyn Nets. In Lowry's absence, the Raptors lost a close game to the Miami Heat then blew out the Cleveland Cavaliers, 133-99.

In 38 appearances this season, Lowry has averaged 16.2 points, seven assists, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.2 steals per game.
