Miami Heat Guard Kyle Lowry Ruled Out for Game 5 Against Miami Heat
Miami Heat point guard Kyle Lowry will miss Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals tonight against the Philadelphia Sixers with a hamstring injury.
Lowry was favoring his hamstring during Sunday's Game 4 against the Sixers. He also missed Game 1 and 2 in Miami and the final two games of the Atlanta series.
In two playoff games against the Sixers, Lowry has scored a total of six points on 3-of-14 shooting in 55 minutes.
But it was clear he was not 100% during Game 4, while he was running up and down the floor.
Lowry, 36, averaged 13.4 points, 4.5 boards and 7.5 assists during the regualr season during his first season in Miami, playing in 63 games.
In his place, expect Miami to start Gabe Vincent or Victor Oladipo
The series is tied 2-2, as the home team has won every game in the series thus far.
The Sixers tip off against the Miami Heat at FTX Center on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. Tune to 97.3 ESPN South Jersey's Sixers Station with Tom McGinnis calling all the action.
