Kyle Lowry to have wrist surgery, likely gone until playoffs

The Toronto Raptors announced Monday star point guard Kyle Lowry will undergo surgery on his wrist.

The Raptors now own the fourth-best record in the entire Eastern Conference after spending the early part of the year in second-place behind only the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In the two tips played by Toronto without Lowry in the lineup since the National Basketball Association reconvened from its all-star break, the Raptors didn't drop a game. Did Lowry hurt his wrist in a glorified exhibition in New Orleans last weekend?

Bale returns, helps Real bolster lead
Gareth Bale was named on the bench after recovering from injury, while Keylor Navas , Luka Modric and Karim Benzema were rested. Real Madrid have held a training session ahead of their upcoming match in the Spanish La Liga .

Either way, the news of Lowry's surgery does not bode well for Toronto's quest to get back to the Eastern Conference Finals. Joseph is averaging 19.3 points, 5.3 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals in three starts this season. The point guard spot will certainly be a question mark for the Raptors down the stretch, as their depth at the position outside of Lowry is not very strong. Lowry is one of the better point guards in the National Basketball Association.

They will need fellow All-Star DeMar DeRozan to step his game up and hold down the fort until Lowry is 100 percent healthy to play. DeRozan's now fifth in the National Basketball Association in scoring this season, averaging 27.7 points per game.

This injury could potentially be devastating for a Raptors team hoping to remain a legitimate contender in the Eastern Conference. They were able to acquire quality veterans in Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker in deals with the Orlando Magic and Phoenix Suns, respectively.
