The Sacramento Kings announced that Chimezie Metu has avoided major injury, but has a bone bruise. He will be listed as Questionable.
From the Kings:
Forward Chimezie Metu underwent an MRI of his left knee. The results showed bone bruises but no structural damage. The injury occurred in the second quarter of last night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Metu will be listed as questionable.
Metu’s leg buckled as he was driving toward the basket. In the moment it looked like it could have been a ligament tear, but luckily it seems to have just been a bad hyperextension. Metu being listed as Questionable opens the possibility that he might not miss any time at all, but even if he misses a game or two this is excellent news. Sacramento has struggled with their backup center minutes this season, but Metu has been the best option so far this season.
The Kings play the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.
