Raptors Kyle Lowry Out - Wrist Surgery

The Toronto Raptors will be without PG Kyle Lowry for the remainder of the NBA regular season. Lowry will undergo surgery on his right wrist and plans on being ready for the start of the NBA Playoffs.

This is terrible news for fantasy basketball owners, as Lowry has been a top 15 player.  DeMar DeRozan should see an increase in shot attempts which should lead to more points scored moving forward, but if your league scores FG%, he could see a drop in efficiency.  Cory Joseph is now a must own in all leagues and is currently 18% owned in Yahoo leagues.

Those of you who missed out on the breaking news and are now searching for a replacement can turn to one of these five point guard eligible players on Yahoo:
