Casey: "Even If It Was A Playoff Game, Lowry Probably Wouldn't Be Able To Go."

There's still time, but this certainly provides perspective on the severity of Lowry's injury

So, an interesting tidbit before tonight's game, depending on how you define interesting, maybe worrisome is the right word:

Lowry has been out with back spasms and the Raptors have eight games left on the schedule after tonight's game against the Rockets. In terms of number of days, the last regular season game is on April 15th, and the playoffs won't start until April 18th at the earliest, so even if Lowry doesn't return until Game 1 of the first round, that gives him over three weeks from today to recover.

So, there's no need to worry about Lowry's availability in the postseason just yet, but hopefully these next few weeks will be the time he needs to get better.
