Raptors vs. Nets: Kyle Lowry, Andrea Bargnani out for Toronto

The injury-plagued Raptors will try to snap a five-game losing streak Wednesday.


Guard Kyle Lowry and forward Andrea Bargnani will not play in Wednesday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets, according to the Raptors' media relations department's Twitter feed:

Lowry is out with a sore right triceps, while Bargnani has a bruised right elbow. Linas Kleiza is out with a sore right knee.

The Raptors will also be without Amir Johnson, who was suspended for one game.

Lowry and Bargnani are two of the team's leading scorers, so the Raptors are hoping to get them back as soon as possible. Bargnani is second on the team with 16 points per game. Lowry, who's only played in 16 games this season, is third on the team with 15.8 points per game. DeMar DeRozan is the team's leading scorer, checking in with 18.5 points per game.

The Raptors are 4-18 this season and sit fifth in the Atlantic Division. Toronto has lost five games in a row. The Nets are 11-9, but they have also lost five games in a row.
