Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry has been ruled out of tonight's road game against the Dallas Mavericks as he recovers from a right ankle sprain.

The Raptors confirmed on their Twitter account that Lowry won't dress and his condition will be reassessed daily.

Lowry twisted his right ankle after landing on Thunder forward Serge Ibaka's foot while going for a rebound in the second quarter in Toronto's 108-88 loss in Oklahoma City on Tuesday. He wore a walking boot as a precaution after leaving the game.

Lowry was acquired from Houston over the off-season and had a stellar first three games for the Raptors, averaging 23.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and seven assists.
