He isn't going to be a savior, and if that team is waiting on him to be, they are done. Toronto is weak in three position right now. 5,4,3. We have future hope at five so its sorted. Derozan, can kinda hold it in place at 2...but its still a bit dicey. We have no three, and our 4's are all clearly not starters, and that includes Bargnani, who, has failed miserably. There's where it is right now.
Because when your overall team is weak like you pointed out at various positions, then having a guy who was playing huge before he got hurt was pivotal. I don't care about the records Lowry was a beast when he played.
Just looking at last night, he plays and we don't have a 4th quarter like we did. No question.
