Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner has a stress reaction in his left foot and will miss at least two weeks.

Turner missed Monday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. The team said Tuesday that Turner was examined by multiple specialists and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

The two-time blocks champion leads the NBA in that category again this season at 2.8 per game. He finished the 2020-21 season with 3.4 per game. Turner also averages 12.9 points and 7.1 rebounds per game in 42 starts this season.

Turner, 25, has been the subject of trade talks and has drawn interest from several teams, per reports. He will be sidelined beyond the Feb. 10 trade deadline.

Turner is in his seventh season, all with the Pacers. He averages 12.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game in 431 career games (398 starts).
