Miami Heat point guard Kyle Lowry is out for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals series at Philadelphia on Thursday.

Miami leads the series 3-2 and can close out the best-of-seven set with the 76ers with another win.


Lowry plans to travel with the team but his ailing hamstring could be a factor beyond this week.

He’s not the only player hurting for the Heat.


Miami’s initial Game 6 injury report includes forwards Caleb Martin (ankle), P.J. Tucker (calf) and Max Strus (hamstring) along with backup point guard Gabe Vincent (knee) and NBA Sixth Man of the Year Tyler Herro (ankle). All are listed as questionable but expected to play.

Lowry missed the first two games of the series and returned for games 3 and 4, but shot 3 of 14 in a total of 55 minutes with six points and five turnovers.

He averaged 13.4 points and 7.5 assists during the regular season, his first with the Heat.

If necessary, Game 7 would be played in Miami on Sunday.
