Lowry played just 24 minutes in the Rockets 116-98 blow out loss to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. There was no mention of any injury to Lowry following the game but it appears that something is up. Houston can ill-afford to lose Lowry who is averaging 15.9 points, 7.2 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game this season.

UPDATE at 9:59 PM:

According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the MRI was not on Lowry's ankle but rather his groin. Feigen reported that "no significant damage was found."
