Ed Davis will miss at least 1-2 weeks of action. The Blazers big man suffered a right ankle sprain Friday night, as confirmed by an MRI. He turned the ankle during an awkward landing in the second half, and limped to the locker room. Since the 1-2 week estimate is solely for re-evaluation, he may still miss more time afterward.

Davis is averaging 5.4 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks off the bench in just under 19 minutes per game this season. In the next seven days, Portland will play the Grizzlies at home, followed by road games against Dallas, Houston and San Antonio.

The NBA playoffs likely begin exactly two weeks from today, Saturday April 14th.
