Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry took a knee to the head from Phoenix Suns forward P.J. Tucker in the middle of the Raps' 121-113 loss to the Suns Sunday afternoon. It looked like it hurt a fair amount.
Lowry stayed in the game and finished with 28 points, 13 assists, five rebounds and two steals. Afterwards, however, he told reporters he was suffering from a headache and said a light in the locker room -- presumably from a TV camera -- was causing him some distress.
Kyle Lowry, in post-game scrum: "I got kneed in the head, bad. I've got a headache right now. This light's killing me.' #rtz— cathalkelly (@cathalkelly) March 16, 2014
Should also note that Lowry said that he's 'fine'. Let's wait until tomorrow before sprucing up our pitchforks and torches.— cathalkelly (@cathalkelly) March 16, 2014
Lowry says no concussion after knee to head, but adds: "I've got a headache right now, this [camera] light's killing me." umm, Kyle ...— Michael Grange (@michaelgrange) March 16, 2014
So the player says he has no concussion, but he took a blow to the head and has light sensitivity. Maybe it's not a concussion, but either way, Lowry and the team should be careful and make sure he's 100 percent before throwing him back out in a game.
