CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey says guard Kyle Lowry will play against the Charlotte Hornets after missing the last three games because of nagging injuries and fatigue.

Casey said before Friday night's game that Lowry has no restrictions and will play "until he gets tired."

Lowry is averaging 18 points and seven assists and has been shooting 41.4 percent from the field this season. However, his production dropped off after the All-Star break, shooting less than 30 percent.
