The heat is bringing back Kyle Lowry
Kyle Lowry is back in action. As reported by Ira Winderman of South Florida Sun SentinelThe veteran baseman will travel with the Heat to Orlando with the intent of getting minutes in the game on Saturday.
For Miami, it could be a drive to win back guard point. The Florida organization is struggling to get into sixth place in the Eastern Conference and every little bit is helping to achieve that goal. Additionally, they did not perform as well without Lowry, who has not played since February 2 due to a sore left knee. To be exact, they’ve compiled a record of 7-8 without him.
The Heat would take advantage of anything Lowry could put on the court, but it might not have been the case if they had found a trading partner before the trade deadline was missed. They tried to give him a way out, but his 37 years and the $29.6 million he should receive in the 2023-24 campaign have stopped any suitors.
The truth is, Lowry has lowered his performance this season. Possibly due to the physical problems he suffered from, his numbers dropped to averages of 12 points, 5.3 assists, and 4.3 rebounds. It’s not clear if he’ll return as a starter or if Erik Spoelstra will choose to keep Gabe Vincent in the quintet and give minutes off the bench to the 2019 NBA champion with the Toronto Raptors.
