Rap­tors’ Lowry to have wrist surgery

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - NBA -

Kyle Lowry hoped the pain in his right wrist would go away so he could join the new-look Rap­tors on the court. Nowthe goal is to get back be­fore the play­offs. The All-Star guard will have surgery Tues­day to re­move loose bod­ies from his wrist.

Lowry took part in All-Star fes­tiv­i­ties in New Or­leans, com­pet­ing in the 3-point con­test and play­ing the next night in the All-Star Game. But he said there’s been con­stant sore­ness since then and went Mon­day for a sec­ond opin­ion.

“It was one of those things where we didn’t know it was as se­ri­ous as it was,” Rap­tors coach Dwane Casey said. “That’s why you get sec­ond opin­ions as he did and we de­cided, he de­cided to have it done now hope­fully to be able to have some­time be­fore the play­offs to get some games in.”

The 76ers waived C An­drew Bogut and an­nounced C Joel Em­biid is out in­def­i­nitely with left knee in­jury. … The Knicks an­nounced C Joakim Noah had a left knee arthroscopy to re­move a loose body and will be re-eval­u­ated in three to four weeks.
