Raptors-Hornets Preview

(AP) -- The Toronto Raptors are starting a tough three-game trip that figures to be all the more difficult if leading scorer Kyle Lowry continues to sit out.

Lowry's status is uncertain for the Raptors on Friday night as they seek to break out of some recent woes against the Charlotte Hornets, who have done well lately without top scorer Kemba Walker.

Lowry has rested the last three games due to some nagging injuries. He is averaging 11.6 points - 6.4 below his average - on 29.7 percent shooting in five games since the All-Star break.
