Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Portland Trail Blazers forward/center Joel Freeland says that he could miss the rest of the 2013-14 regular season with a knee injury.

Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports that Portland Trail Blazers forward/center Joel Freeland could miss the rest of the 2013-14 regular season with a knee injury.

The Trail Blazers' backup big man on Tuesday said he could miss another five weeks - or the rest of the regular season.

"I look at it like I've got a month to get ready for the playoffs," Freeland said.

The full story -- with additional details about Freeland's progress -- is right here.

Freeland suffered a sprained MCL in his right knee back on February 10 and the team placed his initial recovery timeline was placed at 4-to-8 weeks. So far, Freeland has been sidelined for roughly four weeks, and this latest update pushes the high end of his total recovery timeline slightly.

Freeland, 27, is in his second season with the Blazers after playing professionally in Spain for a number of years. He is averaging 3.3 points and 3.9 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game this season.

The final game of Portland's regular season is Wednesday, April 16, against the Los Angeles Clippers at the Moda Center.
