Kyle Lowry Withdraws👋 from USA🇺🇸 Team Consideration for FIBA World Cup



Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry withdrew from Team USA on Monday after admitting his surgically-repaired thumb is not ready to allow him to participate in on-court workouts.

Lowry had surgery last month to repair a torn tendon that dogged him during the NBA playoffs, and was hopeful of being on the floor as early as Tuesday when the Americans resume practice in El Segundo, California.

But after meeting with his surgeon on Monday, Lowry realised he was not going to be able to play.

"I was hoping to be available in time to help my country in their quest for gold in this upcoming tournament," Lowry wrote on Instagram. "I love playing for USAB but I have to sit this one out and support the team from home."

Lowry will now focus on getting healthy for the start of the NBA season. The Raptors begin the defense of their NBA title with a home game against the New Orleans Pelicans on October 22.

Lowry, 33, averaged 14.2 points and 8.7 assists for the Raptors last season.

The five-time All-Star averaged 15.0 points and 6.6 assists during the postseason.
