COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri forward Laurence Bowers has a sprained MCL in his right knee and is expected to miss at least two games.
An MRI confirmed the extent of the injury, which occurred Tuesday night during a collision under the basket with teammate Phil Pressey. The school said Wednesday that the MRI revealed no damage to the ACL or bone.
Bowers missed all last season with a torn ligament in his left knee and wears a brace on that leg.
Bowers, who leads the 10th-ranked Tigers with a 17-point average and is second with seven rebounds per game, will miss games against Mississippi on Saturday and Georgia on Jan. 16. The injury will be reevaluated at the end of next week.
