Bucks' Bobby Portis Jr. out at least 2 weeks with knee, ankle injuries

Portis exited Monday's game in Detroit early in the 4th quarter.

Bobby Portis will miss at least 2 weeks due to multiple injuries.

Milwaukee Bucks forward Bobby Portis Jr. will miss time due to a pair of injuries — a right knee MCL sprain and a right ankle sprain — he suffered during Monday’s win against the Detroit Pistons.

Portis will be reevaluated in two weeks, per the team.

Portis, 27, exited Monday’s game early in the fourth quarter after registering 18 points and 10 rebounds. The Arkansas product has played in every game this season, averaging 14.1 points and 10.1 rebounds.

Portis is expected to miss at least seven games, according to Milwaukee’s two-week timeline. His absence is yet another sting for the Bucks, who have yet to be at full strength for an extended period of time this season. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton just returned from injury-related absences of their own.

The Bucks are 30-17 and third in the Eastern Conference standings.
