Nick Nurse admits Kyle Lowry’s hand is ‘not great’
The Toronto Raptors are battling some serious pain to play their way through the Eastern Conference Finals.
On Wednesday, coach Nick Nurse admitted that point guard Kyle Lowry was battling pain in his left hand as a result of a thumb injury suffered in the conference semifinals against Philadelphia.
“Kyle’s hand is not great,” Nurse said, via Tim Bontemps of ESPN. “You know, he’s — it’s hurt and it’s sore and it causes him a lot of pain. But he seems to be able to manage it through the game and do what he can do.”
Lowry was in some visible pain during Game 3. However, he’s still been effective against Milwaukee, especially after the series shifted to Toronto. He scored 25 points in a big Game 4 victory, so it’s clear he can still do the job despite his injury.
