Phoenix Suns center Marcin Gortat had an MRI Thursday morning that revealed a Lisfranc (midfoot) sprain in his right foot. The injury is expected to sideline him for approximately three to four weeks.
Gortat, a 6-11, 245-pound center, was injured with 34.6 seconds remaining in the first quarter of the Suns’ 98-71 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.
Gortat has appeared in every game since being acquired by the Suns on Dec. 18, 2010 — 182 consecutive. He has started 138 consecutive games for Phoenix, every game since March 27, 2011, and is the only Sun to start every game this season. He owns season averages of 11.1 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.61 blocks in 61 games (61 starts).
