Kyle Lowry dealing with wrist injury, could miss extended time

Toronto Raptors all-star guard Kyle Lowry will have surgery on his right wrist Tuesday and will likely miss the remainder of the regular season.

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".

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

Lowry hasn't played since returning from the All-Star break.

The 30-year-old was averaging a career-high 22.8 points per game while shooting 41.7 percent from three-point range.

At 35-24 they are now fourth in the Eastern Conference, mere percentage points behind third place Washington.

The Raptors have 23 games left in the regular season. They visit the New York Knicks on Monday, before back-to-back games against Eastern Conference rival Washington Wizards.
