Default Suns center Marcin Gortat out 3-4 weeks

The Suns announced Thursday that center Marcin Gortat will miss 3-4 weeks because of a sprained right foot suffered Wednesday against the Raptors. Via the Arizona Republic, Gortat will have the foot put in a cast and actually doubts he'll play again this season. The Suns only have about six weeks left in their season and without much to play for, withholding Gortat is a safe move.

Analysis: Gortat, 29, is averaging 11.1 points and 8.5 rebounds on the season. Without him, the Suns will likely start Hamed Haddadi or go small with Luis Scola at center as veteran Jermaine O'Neal is currently away from the team tending to a family matter. Fantasy owners making a playoff push or in season-long rotisserie leagues might hold out hope that Gortat can return in time to help down the stretch, but in reality his Fantasy season is likely over. If you need a roster spot you can consider cutting Gortat for a player who can help you now.
