Kyle Lowry has been diagnosed with a bacterial infection after complaining of fever and abdominal distress and has been hospitalized in New York since Thursday.

Lowry will be administered antibiotic treatment for the infection and is expected out from two to four weeks.

“It’s tough, it’s tough,” forward Chase Budinger said. “He’s definitely our leader and our go-to player on the team. Missing him for the next month or so is going to hurt us very much. The rest of us have to really step up because it’s a big hole to fill.”
