Miami Heat guard Kyle Lowry will not play in Tuesday's Game 5 against the Philadelphia 76ers due to a hamstring issue.

Lowry tweaked his hamstring in the second quarter of Sunday's 116-108 loss to the Sixers. The six-time All-Star underwent treatment and returned to the contest but didn't play in the final 10 minutes of the fourth quarter.

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said the team considers Lowry day-to-day with the injury and he did not get another MRI, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell.

The 36-year-old guard said after Game 4 that he would attempt to play Tuesday.

Lowry has struggled this postseason, averaging 6.2 points, 5.2 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and a steal in under 30 minutes per game.

The series shifts to Miami tied 2-2 after the Sixers won both games in Philadelphia. Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
