Raptors Kyle Lowry To Undergo Wrist Surgery; Likely Out Until The Playoffs

Lowry's injury could put the Raptors in danger of dropping into the bottom-half of the Eastern Conference heading into the playoffs which could make the playoffs much more of a hard task.

Raptors All Star Kyle Lowry is undergoing wrist surgery, and the team says he will "aim to return for playoffs". Did Lowry hurt his wrist in a glorified exhibition in New Orleans last weekend?

Though Toronto has a lot of depth and an easy remaining schedule, Lowry's absence should damage the Raptors' chances of catching the Boston Celtics for the second seed or the Washington Wizards for the third seed.

The Raptors enter Monday with a record of 35-24, good for fourth place in the Eastern Conference. The Raptors now hold a 2.5 game edge over the Atlanta Hawks for the four-seed and home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

The Raptors now own the fourth-best record in the entire Eastern Conference after spending the early part of the year in second-place behind only the Cleveland Cavaliers.

As it turns out, the Raptors will have to rely on that trio and others for the rest of the regular season.

Coach Dwane Casey said he is unsure how long Kyle Lowry (wrist) is going to be out, but that "it's not a one-day thing". However, the Raptors could lose home court advantage very quickly.
