Lauri Markkanen underwent an MRI of his right hip which revealed an early stress reaction of his right pelvis. Following a period of rest, Markkanen will resume basketball related activities with a full return anticipated in 4-6 weeks.
Lauri has had a banged up season (and career), first with a barely-acknowledged oblique strain, then an ankle sprain, and now this. He has played in every game this season.
Obvious initial questions include how long this particular injury has been going on, how it may have affected his mostly ineffectual play all season, and if Lauri is simply injury-prone.
