Kyle Lowry Injury Update: Rockets PG Has Surgery For Sports Hernia

The Houston Rockets saw themselves eliminated from the 2012 NBA Playoffs in the final week of the regular season. The strike-shortened 2011-12 NBA season saw players racking up injuries in droves due to the frantic pace of the schedule. The Rockets were not immune to the injury bug, as point guard Kyle Lowry missed the last two games of the season due to suffering a sports hernia.

Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports that Lowry had the surgery for his sports hernia on Tuesday. There is currently no timetable for when he is expected to return to action.

Lowry, who has been with Houston since 2009, was great for the team this past season, averaging 14.3 points per game and 6.6 assists per game. Lowry's minutes severely decreased as the season drew to a close, taking just three shots in seven minutes in an April 21 game against the Golden State Warriors before missing the last two games of the season against the Miami Heat and the New Orleans Hornets.
