Bowers expected to miss at least next 2 games

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri forward Laurence Bowers has a sprained MCL in his right knee and is expected to miss at least two games.

An MRI confirmed the extent of the injury, which occurred Tuesday night during a collision under the basket with teammate Phil Pressey. The school said Wednesday the MRI revealed no damage to the ACL or bone.

Bowers missed all last season with a torn ligament in his left knee and wears a brace on that leg.

Bowers, who leads the 10th-ranked Tigers with a 17-point average and is second with seven rebounds per game, will miss games against Mississippi on Saturday and Georgia on Jan. 16.
