Toronto Raptors: Kyle Lowry to undergo surgery on right wrist

Alyssa BaileyFeb 28, 2017

The Raptors are 35-24 on the season and sit in second place in the Atlantic Division.

The 30-year-old old said he originally hurt his wrist during a game February 15 against Charlotte.

The Raptors announced it this afternoon but did not give a specific date for his expected return, terming it simply that he will "aim to return for playoffs".

Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry is set to undergo wrist surgery to remove loose bodies from his right wrist, and he's aiming to return for the playoffs. Originally breaking into the league as a member of the Memphis Grizzlies, Lowry was selected in the first-round of the 2006 NBA Draft out Villanova. Did Lowry hurt his wrist in a glorified exhibition in New Orleans last weekend?

Lowry, 30, is having the best season of his 11-year National Basketball Association career, averaging 22.8 points, 6.9 assists and 4.7 rebounds.

It was Toronto's final game before heading into the National Basketball Association all-star break. The point guard spot will certainly be a question mark for the Raptors down the stretch, as their depth at the position outside of Lowry is not very strong.

According to witnesses, Valencia was "shouting that he did not want to return to Mexico" before jumping to his death. A Mexican man took his own life just 30 minutes after he was deported from the USA for the third time.

Clearly, the Raptors are a better team with a healthy, even a banged-up Lowry, available, but as long as DeMar DeRozan can score at the rate he's been filling the net - he had games of 43, a career high, and 33 heading into Monday night's game against the host Knicks - there should be enough talent to compensate for Lowry's loss. DeRozan's now fifth in the National Basketball Association in scoring this season, averaging 27.7 points per game.

The Celtics appear to have caught a break in their race for the Eastern Conference's No. 2 seed.

With Ibaka, the team can go small and the added presence of Tucker allows the Raptors to switch on defence without getting caught in poor matchups.
