The NBA Playoffs have seen a lot of ups and downs but unlike years past we haven’t had any major injuries derail anyone’s season. Outside of injuries that happened to players during the season, so far we haven’t had a star players blow out his knee or tear up his ligaments.
Kyle Lowry gave us all a scare on Sunday night though when he got beat up by the Brooklyn Nets and looked to have suffered a knee injury. While he indeed suffered some sort of knee injury, Lowry let everyone know that it’s not going to keep him out of the series.
“I’m okay, it’s controllable,” Lowry said of his knee when asked if he needed to be mindful of it heading into free agency. “We can do what we need to do to get through the playoffs. It’s nothing I need surgery for or anything like that. It’s definitely a pain, but I’m not going to worry about it, I’m not going to complain about it, I’m just going to do my job.”
The Raptors tied their series with the Nets 2-2 last night and now head back to Toronto with a chance to go up 3-2. Lowry has been a big part of their season so far and losing him may have been a fatal blow to whatever run the Raptors are on.
