2015-16

Expectations were high for Lowry coming off a career year, and for a while, he was meeting and even exceeding them, but injuries ground him down and by the time the playoffs rolled around he was a shell of his normal self. His final numbers were similar to 2013-14, as he averaged 35 minutes, 17.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 1.9 three-pointers while shooting 41 percent from the floor, 34 percent from three-point range, and 81 percent from the free-throw line in 70 games, but his numbers before and after the All-Star break were night and day as his points, assists, and field goal percentage all suffered significant drops in the second half. Lowry's small stature and pugnacious, full-throttle playing style is always going to leave him susceptible to bumps and bruises, so Raptors GM Masai Ujiri spent the offseason bringing in players better suited to taking some of the load off Lowry's shoulders, signing Canadian combo guard Cory Joseph away from the Spurs and drafting defensive-minded point guard Delon Wright. The reinforcements may not result in a decrease in Lowry's court time given how key he is to the team's success, but they do leave the club in a better position to handle his seemingly inevitable absences.

2014-15

Lowry seemed like a sure bet to get dealt to a contender last season, but a funny thing happened. He matured, both on and off the court, and took charge of a Raptors team that surprised everyone and made the postseason for the first time since the 2007-08 season. Impressed with Lowry's production, general manager Masai Ujiri signed him to a four-year, $48 million contract on the second day of free agency to keep him in Toronto as the Raptors' starting point guard. Lowry will look to build on a campaign in which he started a career-high 79 games and averaged career-highs of 17.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2.4 three-pointers in 36 minutes per game while shooting 42 percent from the floor, 38 percent from beyond the arc, and 81 percent from the free-throw line. His uptempo, bulldog style fits well with DeMar DeRozan, Terrence Ross, and Amir Johnson, and as one of the (relatively speaking) grizzled veterans on a young, athletic roster, the only thing standing between Lowry and another strong fantasy season is his ability to stay healthy.

2013-14

It's put up or shut up time for Kyle Lowry. After years being stuck in job-shares, he was finally handed the keys to an offense of his own last season when the Raptors dealt Jose Calderon. And just like a new driver given the keys to dad's car, he hit a curb, scratched up the bumper and left the thing with no gas at all. Limited as is his wont by a series of nagging injuries, Lowry finished the season with a four-year low scoring average of 11.6 ppg to go with 6.4 assists and 4.7 boards per game, shooting 40 percent from the floor. And despite the fact that he was Toronto's nominal starter for much of the season, his minute-per-game average dropped to 30. There was talk that new general manager Masai Ujiri would look for help at the point guard spot this summer, but for now, the job belongs to Lowry, and apart from D.J. Augustin, who is more of a scorer than floor general, there really isn't an established alternative on Toronto's roster. Lowry has reportedly dropped 10-to-15 pounds in the hopes of staying healthy this season. He should have plenty of motivation; his contract expires after this season. If he struggles to stay on the floor again, he could factor into a lot of trade rumors come February.

2012-13

Kyle Lowry is one of the NBA's biggest teases. He always plays well when given an opportunity, but always seems to get stuck in a platoon. Last year was another great example. Lowry was playing at an All-Star level, but wound up clashing with Rockets coach Kevin McHale--and missing time due to a sports hernia. He became "Plan B" for Toronto when they lost out on Steve Nash, and could thrive as the Raptors' lead guard, but general manager Bryan Colangelo still hasn't resolved Jose Calderon's status. It seems unlikely that the Raptors will pay the Spaniard over $10 million to sit on the bench. As such, Lowry could be stuck in yet another job share--at least until Colangelo can move Calderon's deal, which expires after this season. Lowry is a very good rebounder for his size and position.

2011-12

Lowry has been teasing us with his potential for years, but only in limited opportunities as a backup to Mike Conley Jr., Aaron Brooks and others. When Brooks sprained his ankle last November, Lowry finally got the opportunity to run a team on a full-time basis. And he made the most of it, playing well enough to make Brooks expendable; 2010�s most-improved player was dealt to Phoenix for a draft pick in February. Lowry closed out his first season as a full-time starter with impressive averages of 13.5 points, 6.7 assists, 4.1 boards and 1.4 steals in just over 34 minutes per game, and shot a respectable .426 from the floor and .376 from three. He�ll go into training camp as the top name on Kevin McHale�s point guard depth chart. One area of concern � Lowry�s three-point percentage last season was more than 100 points higher than the previous year, and well above his career average of .317. If he regresses to the numbers we�ve seen for most of his career, his value would take a significant hit.

2010-11

Lowry is once again set to backup point guard Aaron Brooks in Houston. He has shown an ability to rack up decent stats in limited minutes before, but Lowry will likely need an injury to Brooks in order to fulfill his fantasy potential.

2009-10

Houston's backup point guard lacks the jaw-dropping quickness of teammate Aaron Brooks, but he's an efficient, pass-first floor general who makes good decisions and understands the game. Lowry should have a significant role in the rotation from the outset, and if Brooks struggles to build on last year's success, Lowry could even take over.

2008-09

Lowry was largely a reserve for the Grizzlies last season, but was able to make a few starts at each of the guard positions, but is more of a one guard than two. He is a bit small but possesses great speed and athletic ability. It's too bad that Mike Conley sits above him on the depth chart, as Lowry has proven that he can put up numbers when given the minutes (14.5 points, 4.67 assists, 1.5 when playing more than 30 minutes). Javaris Crittenton's emergence last season doesn't help Lowry's cause and may make him expendable at some point during the season. He's a sleeper if he ends up in a favorable situation or if Conley goes down.

2007-08

Lowry played in only 10 games his rookie season before breaking his wrist. Though Lowry did show some potential in his brief rookie campaign, the addition of Mike Conley, Jr. means he won't see a whole lot of time on the court. He will still get some time in the rotation - more if Damon Stoudamire is traded at some point.
