Retraction To Post About Toronto Raptors’ Medical Treatment Of Kyle Lowry

Yesterday I dropped the ball in writing about how I perceived Toronto’s treatment of Kyle Lowry in the fourth quarter of a loss to the Phoenix Suns.

From my vantage point and from my perspective of the NBA rules, I wrote an article claiming the Toronto Raptors medical staff didn’t follow the NBA’s policy on treating concussions.

I was wrong.

After talking with a representative for the Toronto Raptors this morning it was made clear the team did numerous tests on Lowry. They checked him for a concussion as well as they checked his spine while he was still on the court.

When Lowry returned to the bench they did more tests.

Also, after the game more tests were run.

Both tests on the court by the medical staff determined that Lowry was fit to return to the game. The tests after the game aligned with that.

As a journalist, I dropped the ball by not talking with the medical staff while at the Air Canada Centre last night. My apologies to Scott McCullough and the entire medical staff of the Toronto Raptors.
