Kyle Lowry out with left knee sprain

Houston Rockets guard Kyle Lowry underwent an MRI at Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine Institute this morning which confirmed a sprain of his left knee.  Lowry will not play in tomorrow’s home game against Phoenix and will be out at least a week prior to being reevaluated.

For the season, Lowry in 25.0 minutes per game averages 8.7 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.7 assists. He’s been a terrific contributor.

The 25-21 Rockets are currently the 9th seed in the Western conference.
