Raptors’ Kyle Lowry suffers whiplash vs. Pacers

Toronto all-star point guard Kyle Lowry left Friday’s game against the Indiana Pacers with what the Raptors diagnosed as whiplash.

Lowry crashed hard to the floor in the third quarter and stayed down on the court for several minutes. X-rays came back negative for anything major, but Raptors head coach Nick Nurse doesn’t expect him to be available for Saturday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Lowry is averaging 19.7 points, 7.3 assists and 4.6 rebounds on the season. Earlier in the game, the 33-year-old passed Vince Carter for third all-time on the Raptors’ scoring list.

Toronto is already without key rotation members Marc Gasol and Norman Powell, who are out indefinitely.
