Washington Wizards center Thomas Bryant will miss at least three weeks due to a stress reaction in his right foot, the team announced Tuesday.
"Hopefully we get good news then,'' Wizards coach Scott Brooks said before Tuesday's game against the Orlando Magic.
Bryant reported pain in the foot following the Wizards' loss to the LA Clippers on Sunday. Tests taken Tuesday revealed the stress reaction.
He is averaging 13.9 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1 block per game this season for Washington.
Brooks said rookie forward Rui Hachimura would slide over to the center spot against the Magic with Davis Bertans starting at forward.
In another lineup change, Brooks said Isaac Bonga would start in place of Troy Brown Jr., who will come off the bench.
Washington was also without reserve center Moritz Wagner (left ankle sprain) and reserve guard C.J. Miles (left wrist ligament injury).
