Also, it has nothing to do with how many games he played. If his shot didn't fall or he was physically unfit that's a different thing because that can improve in a few games, but decision-making is mental and it won't matter if he played 3 games or 10 games as it'll take more time to improve. I think that's why so many are critical. That is a mindset issue, it's not a one-time thing.

I think it wasn't as noticeable pre-injury because he made his poorly selected shots. Secondly, he might be forcing it even more now since he is trying to make a come back, resulting in more forced shots.

I really like the guy and I think he'll improve in that regard depending on how open he is to changing this bad habit and how well coaches are diagnosing and dealing with the issue.
Yea,I see what you're saying Zap and respect your opinions. I've grown to like Lowry and think he can be a key piece towards future success for the Raptors. For the record,if there's a trade involving him which makes the team undoubtedly better,you obviously trade him but for now he's a keeper,besides he cost the Raptors a 1st round pick haha,let's remain positive about this experiment.
