It looked bad, but the scary injury Kyle Lowry sustained in overtime when the Nets Quincy Acy undercut his legs as the Raptors All-Star point guard was snagging a key rebound has been listed as day-to-day.
Here you go. When he tries to get up and walk is when you really feel his pain but never… We’re all fans of the sport and for a star or player to go down, you gotta hate it😪 pic.twitter.com/ZJU3SrEb3r

Kyle Lowry was examined Tuesday and was diagnosed with a bruised tailbone and back spasms. X-Rays were negative. Lowry will be treated by the Raptors medical team, and his condition will be reevaluated daily. Lowry will not play Tuesday vs. the Heat.

Today’s update, including the fact that Lowry’s X-rays came back negative, certainly qualifies as good news.
Lowry is considered day-to-day and could be back in the lineup by the end of this week.
In what seems to be a recurring theme this season when it comes to big games, the timing of this injury couldn’t be worse for NBA fans.
This week the 28-10 Raptors are scheduled to face the 26-14 Cavaliers on Thursday and the 33-8 Warriors on Saturday. So much for trying to get a better read on where the NBA Eastern Conference’s second place team fits among the league’s elite.
