While Kyle Lowry is out of the hospital and is recovering well from a serious bacterial infection, his status for the rest of the season is up in the air.
Asked if he hoped to play again this year, Lowry said, "I don't know. Honestly, once the antibiotics system gets through we'll see. We'll go back and see what the doctor says."
The Rockets have 17 games remaining in the regular season. But the fact that Lowry is not yet close to returning to the court gives an indication of the seriousness of his recent bacterial infection.
Lowry last played March 7 in a game at the Toronto Raptors, but the symptoms of his illness began prior to that game.
"I was feeling terrible, horrible, awful," Lowry said. "I wasn't feeling right at all. It was a bad ordeal for me. After the game I think the guys waited for me for an hour because I was trying to get an IV and they couldn't do it and I was cold. I was cold, shivering, getting chills."
