Robin Lopez to Miss ‘Several Weeks’

by November 16, 2010

The Suns‘ big fella suffered a knee sprain, and will not be able to play for at least a month. From the AZ Republic: “Lopez suffered a moderate sprain of his medial-collateral ligament and posterior-cruciate ligament in his left knee, a MRI exam showed Monday. He sustained the injury in the second quarter of Sunday’s win against the Lakers in Los Angeles when Jared Dudley fell into his leg. The Suns’ statement was Lopez would miss ‘several weeks.’ ‘My experience is whenever you put a time frame on it, it’s wrong, so we might as well be a little bit vague and hope for the best and prepare for the worst,’ Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby said. ‘It’s a little bit more serious than we first thought it would be. We were very cautious, took a MRI, and that revealed it was a moderate sprain as opposed to a mild sprain.'”
