Kyle Lowry and Duncan Robinson have been two players who seem to have found the rhythm for Miami Heat in the NBA 2021-22 Season. However, during the Celtics vs Heat showdown, it was the former team who came out victorious in a relatively off-night for the Heat. However, the biggest concern for Erik Spoelstra’s team was the collision between teammates Kyle Lowry and Duncan Robinson.
Talking about the particular moment, it was the third quarter where the Miami Heat wanted to take the aggressive approach against the Boston Celtics. Jaylen Brown passed the ball to his teammate and in the process pushed Duncan Robinson to the floor. Sliding back, Robinson went and collided with Kyle Lowry’s left ankle. After the veteran was seen in evident pain and went straight ot the locker room.
Kyle Lowry and Duncan Robinson involved in scary collision
Miami Heat announced that Lowry has suffered from a sprained ankle injury and will not continue the game, ruling him out as the Heat suffered a 78-95 loss via the hands of Boston Celtics. Now with Kyle Lowry out for sometime, it seems like Tyler Herro will be urged to take more responsibility on the floor.
Having said that, Miami Heat had been off to a very hot start with Lowry so far, especially on the defensive end. In six games, while playing 31.8 minutes per contest, the six-time All-Star, Lowry has averaged 10.7 points, a team-leading 7.5 assists and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 40.0% from the field and 37.1% from beyond the arc.
Even if Jimmy Butler’s Miami Heat are fortunate enough for Lowry not to be sidelined for a few games, his availability is important to monitor. He has played less than 60 games in each of the last two seasons. The 35-year-old has the veteran savvy and high-end talent to elevate the Heat back into title contention.
