Rockets' Kyle Lowry Sentenced To Community Service In Misdemeanor Battery Case

Rockets guard Kyle Lowry was ordered to complete 100 hours of community service and impulse-control counseling stemming from a misdemeanor battery charge this summer, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Lowry was accused of throwing a ball at an official after a game played in Las Vegas during the lockout. Because the case was a misdemeanor, Lowry was not required to appear in court today -- Clark County Courts spokesperson Mary Ann Price told the Chronicle that once Lowry completes his service time, the case against him will be dismissed.

Lowry is having an All-Star caliber season for the Rockets, averaging 14.7 points, 8.0 assists, 6.2 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game.
