Suns' Gortat out with foot sprain

The Phoenix Suns announced Thursday that starting center Marcin Gortat is expected to miss approximately 3-to-4 weeks due to a Lisfranc sprain in his right foot.

Gortat sustained the injury during the first half of Wednesday's 98-71 loss to Toronto. The six-year pro has appeared in 182 consecutive games for the Suns since being acquired from the Orlando Magic in December of 2010.

The 29-year-old Poland native has also started all 61 games for Phoenix this season and is averaging 11.1 points and a team-best 8.5 rebounds per contest. Gortat also leads the Suns with 98 blocked shots.
