Washington Wizards center Thomas Bryant will be out at least three weeks after being diagnosed with a stress reaction in his right foot, the team announced.
Bryant experienced pain in his foot after Washington’s loss against the LA Clippers on Sunday, which concluded a four-game West road trip for the Wizards.
The team will take on the Orlando Magic on Tuesday without their normal starting center, who has been a solid man in the middle since joining the franchise last season. With Moritz Wagner out with an ankle injury, Rui Hachimura will start at center.
Bryant, 22, is averaging 13.9 points and 8.5 rebounds in 18 starts for the Wizards this season.
