Kyle Lowry had a vintage performance in the Toronto Raptors’ ninth straight victory, but the focus after the game was on his injured left wrist.
Lowry had 29 points when, with about four minutes left in the game Tuesday night, he caught his left wrist on a Wizards player setting a screen. He quickly left the floor and went up the tunnel toward the Toronto locker room before coming back to the bench briefly and then, finally, being led away again by the training staff back under the stands.

Bobby Portis Apologizes to Bulls for Mirotic Fight
Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.
Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
