Robin Lopez Out Two Weeks After Seeing Specialist

The Phoenix Suns just released the following information about Robin Lopez who didn't travel with the team after learning Saturday morning that he has two bulging disks in his back:

After being seen today by specialist Dr. Christopher Huston of The Orthopedic Clinic Association (TOCA) in Phoenix, it was determined that center Robin Lopez will undergo a conservative treatment of medication, rest and rehabilitation on his injured back. Lopez will then be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Well, at least it isn't surgery. Two weeks puts him back on April 11th, a couple of games before the playoffs start but of course if only say he would be re-evaluated then so that's not promising.

But you never know, maybe he will respond well to treatment and be back in time for the first round. Without Robin, the Suns chances of a playoff win go down considerably.
