The hamstring injury that kept Kyle Lowry out of the first two games of the series against Philadelphia has returned. Relapse cannot come at a worse time. Miami lost this morning to the 76ers and now returns to Florida with the series tied (2-2) and without knowing if they will be able to count on their starting point guard in Game 5.
“You don’t want to play with something like that, but we’re in a situation in the playoffs where we have to get through a hostile moment and we’re in it together no matter what. I’m just going to try to be on the track to help the boys no matter what happens or the situation », expresses the point guard himself after losing to the Sixers and seeing his physical problem worsen.
Lowry, who last night had 6 points and 7 assists in 30 minutes of play, did not specify when the injury occurred; yes, everything points to some time in the second quarter, since in the middle of it he left the field to go to the locker room. He played again, but he did not look comfortable and was not on court for the last nine minutes of the match. He himself leaves his participation in the next qualifying match up in the air.
«I will receive treatment in Miami and from there we will see. It is a difficult time for an injury in this area. I have never had an injury to those tissues. The goal is to be on the floor. If you ask me if I’m going to try to play, yes, I will. I will try to be in Game 5 ”, he sentences.
