Miami will also not have Kyle Lowry for Game 6

The Heat have confirmed that Kyle Lowry won’t be able to dress for Game 6 of their playoff against the 76ers, as the hamstring issues that reappeared in Game 4 have not subsided.

Despite not being available for Erik Spoelstra, the veteran point guard will travel with the rest of the team to his hometown, Philadelphia, to support his teammates in a game that could qualify them for the Eastern Conference finals, where they would expect the Boston Celtics or Milwaukee Bucks.

Regarding the relevance of his absence, the truth is that those from Florida have managed well without him. In the first round against Atlanta, he was on court for only the first three games, of which the Heat went 2-1 before finishing 4-1. Already in the current series, curiously, he has only played games ‘3’ and ‘4’, which have coincided with the two defeats of his team. The truth is that when he has had minutes he has not looked good physically. In the two matches against the Pennsylvanians he has accumulated 3 of 14 shooting from the field (0 of 8 in triples).
