DETROIT (AP) — Detroit’s Kelly Olynyk will miss at least six weeks with a sprained left knee.

Olynyk was hurt Wednesday in the Pistons’ 112-104 victory over the Houston Rockets, limping off the court in the fourth quarter.

The Pistons said he underwent testing Thursday that revealed a Grade 2 MCL sprain. The team said Olynyk would be re-evaluated in six weeks by team medical personnel and updates would be provided as appropriate.

Olynyk averages 12.3 points and 5.3 rebounds a game for the Pistons, playing 23 minutes a night off the bench. Olynyk’s absence puts more on the plate of Isaiah Stewart, and it could mean more run for Trey Lyles.
