Kyle Lowry will have off-season surgery
A season that began with guard Kyle Lowry playing at an All-Star level will end with him getting ready for off-season surgery.
Lowry said Sunday he would not be able to play in the Rockets final regular-season games because of a sports hernia and the groin injury that sent him to the hospital when a bacterial infection was discovered March 8.
He missed a month with the infection, spending the first week in the hospital. He has struggled since.
“I’m shutting it down,” Lowry said. “With the injuries, I won’t be playing again this year. With the groin and the sports hernia, it’s a lot to deal with. I made a decision to shut it down.”
