MIAMI – The Miami Heat will be without their regular point guard for Game 2 against the 76ers.

The team announced Tuesday that Kyle Lowry will remain out with a hamstring injury.

Jimmy Butler came off the injury list, but missed Tuesday’s practice with an excused absence.

The Heat ran away with Game 1 in the second half and beat the 76ers 106-92.

The 76ers are playing without their best player, Joel Embiid.

He suffered an orbital fracture and concussion in the team’s close-out win over Toronto.

Embiid is not in Miami for Game 2.

Philadelphia is hoping to have him back when the series moves to Philadelphia later in the week.
