Raptors' Kyle Lowry to miss rest of regular season after undergoing surgery

The Toronto Raptors may have dealt for Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker before the National Basketball Association trade deadline last week, but that may not be enough to help the fourth-place Raptors creep up the Eastern Conference standings. The Raptors anticipate Lowry will be back in time for the 2017 Eastern Conference Playoffs.

Lowry missed both of the Raptors' games since the All-Star Game with the sore wrist.

Lowry was ruled out of Friday's game, and he will be evaluated further over the weekend.

Democrats called for an independent investigation into Trump's Russian Federation ties and urged Republicans to join them. Democrats are also asking that the findings of the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation be made public.

Instead of heading back to the court, Lowry will be heading for surgery in New York Tuesday morning, a procedure to remove loose bodies from his right wrist, or shooting hand, performed by Dr. Michelle Carlson.

It was Toronto's final game before heading into the National Basketball Association all-star break.

As it turns out, the Raptors will have to rely on that trio and others for the rest of the regular season. The Raptors have averaged 113.2 points with Lowry on the floor this season, compared to 105.1 without him.

The sentence, which included a year's probation and a demotion in rank, was lighter than expected. After the sentencing, the family sang Israel's national anthem.

One of the Celtics' biggest foes for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference was dealt a giant blow on Monday.

With Ibaka, the team can go small and the added presence of Tucker allows the Raptors to switch on defence without getting caught in poor matchups.
