Raptors' Kyle Lowry says thumb popped out during Game 7 victory

It would be unwise to question the character of Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry again.

Lowry briefly left Sunday’s Game 7 against the Philadelphia 76ers with what was believed to be a thumb injury, but reentered the game shortly thereafter in the first quarter.

The Raptors guard told reporters that he popped his dislocated thumb back into place and carried on without further incident.

“Doesn't matter, I'm fine, I played, we won the game,” Lowry said, according to Blake Murphy of The Athletic.

It’s not the first time Lowry suffered a dislocated finger during the playoffs, previously suffering one during the Raptors’ victory over the Orlando Magic in Game 5 of their first-round series.

Lowry finished Game 7 with 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting, to go along with six rebounds, six assists, two steals, and two turnovers.

After finishing off the 76ers in what proved to be an exhausting series, Lowry now has some time for his finger to mend as the Raptors face off against the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday.
