Kyle Lowry will take the court for the Toronto Raptors in their pre-season finale against the Miami Heat on Friday.

Head coach Nick Nurse said he expects Lowry to play in both halves of the game. The 34-year-old did not suit up in the Raptors' first two pre-season games against the Charlotte Hornets.

Miami will be without Jimmy Butler, Kendrick Nunn and Avery Bradley, the team announced.

Toronto opens the regular season on Dec. 23 against the New Orleans Pelicans.
