Lowry Hospitalized, Out vs. Nets

Neither the Nets nor the Rockets will have their starting point guards Saturday night in Newark.

Kyle Lowry checked himself into a New York hospital Thursday for fever and abdominal distress and he tweeted, "out of commission for a while." Initial tests proved inconclusive.

Jonathan Feigen, the Rockets beat writer for the Houston Chronicle tweeted Saturday afternoon that while the fever had subsided, Lowry is still hospitalized and out for the Nets and the rest of the Rockets road trip. Lowry has been averaging 15.9 points and 7.2 assists, shooting nearly 40 per cent from deep.

Meanwhile, another point guard, the Wolves' Ricky Rubio is out for the season with a torn ACL, an injury which will increase the likelihood of the Rockets making the playoffs and the Nets getting Houston's pick in the 2012 Draft.
