Miami Heat's Kyle Lowry voices frustration after sustaining injury

Kyle Lowry sustained a left hamstring injury in the third quarter and watched the rest of the Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks games from the bench. Lowry, the Heat's starting point guard, was visibly frustrated after the game as he didn't hide his frustration and anger after not being able to help his team down the stretch.

The Heat went on a 21-0 run to open a 14-point lead early in the fourth quarter but then went cold down the stretch as the Hawks escaped with a 111-110 win to reduce the deficit to 2-1. "I'm pissed the f--- off," Lowry told ESPN as he walked out of State Farm Arena after the game with a noticeable limp.

Lowry on if the injury could force him to miss any games

"No, I'm Wolverine," Lowry said with a wry smile, referencing the X-Men comic book character known for his super-human healing powers. After the game, Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra couldn't tell much about the severity of Lowry's injury.

"All I know right now is it's a hamstring," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after the game when asked about Lowry. "But I do not know the severity of it and we'll find out more tomorrow." Before Lowry went down with an injury, he had six points and five assists.

Having an experienced guard like Lowry would have certainly helped the Heat down the stretch, who lost after Jimmy Butler's potential fadeaway game-winner didn't go in. "I know we love that guy as our point guard," Butler said of Lowry.

"If he's with us, yippee-ki-yay. If he's not, somebody has got to step in and do his job. "It's very, very hard to do. But we got enough in that locker room to try to bring to the table what Kyle does. He'll get his treatment and we'll see where he's at."
