Raptors' Kyle Lowry: Withdraws from Team USA

Lowry (thumb) withdrew Monday from his commitment to Team USA for the FIBA World Cup later in August, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Lowry posted on his personal Instagram page that he was hoping he would be ready to take part in international competition this summer, but he ultimately won't be able to do so after having yet to receive clearance for full basketball activities since undergoing surgery on his left thumb in July. The veteran expects to be 100 percent healthy or close to it when the Raptors convene for training camp in the fall.
