HOUSTON (CBS Houston) — Rockets point guard Kyle Lowry will miss the remainder of the season due to a sports hernia, the team announced prior to Sunday’s game at Miami.

Lowry apparently suffered the injury during the first half of Saturday night’s win over Golden State. He didn’t play the entire second half after logging just 7:18 off the bench.

The Rockets are in the hunt for the eighth and final Western Conference playoff spot with two remaining regular season games left. It’s unclear if Lowry will be available should the Rockets make the playoffs.

Lowry’s season ends just over two weeks after his return from a month-long absence due to a bacterial infection. Lowry, the Rockets former starting point guard, returned to the lineup sooner than expected but had struggled to his form prior to the sickness.

In his absence former backup Goran Dragic has flourished as the starter.
