Raptors’ Lowry to have wrist surgery
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.
