Lowry has a sprained left ankle. He attempted to warm up before Game 3 on Friday before the determination was made that he could not play.
Lowry said trying to play likely made the ankle worse.
The Raptors trail the series 3-0. No team in NBA history has successfully rallied from such a deficit.
“Hopefully some things change, but right now I don’t think I’ll be able to play,” Lowry said.
Lowry was getting more treatment Saturday, adding that he’s not “giving up hope” of being ready to attempt playing in Game 4.
