Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry will return to the lineup for his team's game against the New Orleans Hornets on Friday.

Lowry suffered a partial tear to his right triceps muscle during a Dec. 10 victory against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The 26-year-old Villanova product, acquired by the Raptors in a trade with Houston this past July, has averaged 15.8 points, 5.8 assists and 5.6 rebounds over 16 games this season.

Jose Calderon will remain the starter at point guard.
