Kyle Lowry returned to the lineup for the Miami Heat's crucial Game 3 against the Boston Celtics.

The veteran guard was upgraded to questionable Friday after missing the last four contests with a hamstring issue. Veteran forward P.J. Tucker is also in the lineup despite injuring his left knee in Game 2.

Lowry initially missed two weeks after sustaining the injury in Game 3 of the Heat's first-round matchup against the Atlanta Hawks. He returned in the second round versus the Philadelphia 76ers but aggravated the injury in Game 4.

The six-time All-Star is averaging 6.2 points, 5.2 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and a steal in five postseason appearances heading into Saturday.

Miami and Boston have one win apiece in the Eastern Conference finals.
