Kyle Lowry avoids concussion, does have flu (Mar 17 12:00 ET )
Kyle Lowry did not suffer a concussion during Sunday's game and he's expected to play on Tuesday as long as his flu doesn't keep him on the sidelines.
Kyle Lowry suffered a head injury late in Sunday's game against the Suns and did not miss time, finishing with 28 points, five boards, 13 assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.
The Scoop:He took a very hard knee to the head from P.J. Tucker and was lied motionless on the floor for a couple minutes. Lowry should be fine and for Tuesday's game against the Hawks despite how he's missed games for strange reasons like a bacterial infection back in 2012. He's one of the best guards in fantasy basketball this season.
