The Raptors’ All-Star point guard will undergo surgery Tuesday to remove loose bodies from right wrist, the team announced Monday. Lowry is without an official timetable for a return to the court but the hope is he can be back for the playoffs.

What a disaster of a week for Sacramento. All season, some factions within the team were looking to trade Cousins, knowing full well that a better package could be obtained for their mercurial star if the move was made early in the year.

Instead, the Kings spent months hammering home the notion that Cousins was staying and that the team would hand him a maximum contract extension worth more than $200 million. Much of this chatter stemmed from the insistence of owner Vivek Ranadive, who thwarted the exploration of trade deals for Cousins in November and December, as he had done in the past.

On the final night of All-Star weekend, the Kings had a change of heart. Now they were open to moving Cousins, finally put off by recent spats of bad behavior. Nevermind that Cousins has been granted indulgences for bad behavior in Sacramento since coming into the league seven years ago 鈥?now, suddenly, the camel’s back had been broken by some pretty thin straw.

With Cousins’ value diminished and with little time to gather together a bidding war for the big man, Vlade Divac meekly accepted a package of Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, plus a first- and second-round draft pick for Cousins. Omri Casspi also went to the Pelicans.
