PHOENIX -- Phoenix Suns centre Marcin Gortat probably is out for the rest of the season after spraining his foot during Wednesday night's loss to Toronto.

The Suns say an MRI revealed a midfoot sprain to his right foot. Gortat will be sidelined three to four weeks, much of that time in a cast.

That timetable would mean Gortat might be back for a handful of games. But with the need for conditioning and the Suns out of playoff contention there is little urgency for a quick return.

The Polish centre is averaging 11.1 points and 8.5 rebounds. He has appeared in 182 consecutive games for Phoenix -- every game since he came to the Suns on Dec. 18, 2010.
