The Miami Heat on Wednesday listed guard Kyle Lowry as out for Thursday’s Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics.

Lowry has missed seven of Miami’s 12 playoff games thus far with a nagging left hamstring injury. He missed the first two games of the Heat’s semifinal series against the Philadelphia 76ers before returning for Games 3 and 4.

In those two games, he combined for six points on 3-for-14 shooting before missing Games 5 and 6. Miami won the series 4-2.

Lowry averaged 13.4 points, 7.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game in 63 games (all starts) in the regular season, his first with Miami.
