Myles Turner has a stress reaction in his left foot and will be out at least two weeks, the Indiana Pacers announced Tuesday.

Turner sat out Indiana's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday with a sore left ankle/foot. After being examined by multiple specialists, he will undergo further evaluation in two weeks and team doctors will offer an updated prognosis.

The game in LA was only the second one Turner has missed this season, and only Domantas Sabonis has missed fewer Pacers games (one). Turner is averaging 12.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.0 assists and a league-leading 2.8 blocks per game.

This is the second straight season he's dealt with foot issues. He didn't play after April 18 of last year due to a tear of the plantar plate in the big toe of his right foot.

The Pacers will continue their five-game road trip Wednesday at the Los Angeles Lakers.
