Lowry Preps For Off-Season Surgery, To Sit Final Two Games Of Season

Kyle Lowry is scheduled for off-season surgery to repair a sports hernia and will miss the Rockets' final two games of the regular season.

“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.”

Lowry missed 15 games with a bacterial infection and has struggled since returning to the court, shooting just 25 percent over his last five games.

“It’s been a long process,” Lowry said. “I haven’t been healthy since I came back. I was trying to help my team. I’ll probably need surgery after the season. I’ve had (the sports hernia) since last July. Now, I think it’s gotten worse. I played with it all year, but it got to the point it got too bad.

“If anybody has seen me play lately, it’s not who I am. It’s one of those tough processes, I tried to play with it and do what I can and not complain about it. It’s a situation I have to get it fixed and taken care of.”
