Bazemore left in the third quarter of the game and did not return. An MRI Sunday confirmed the injury, and he’ll be reevaluated in about two weeks.
The 6-5 guard is averaging 14 points, four rebounds and 2.6 assists this season. Expect rookie guard Kevin Huerter to get more playing time in Bazemore’s absence.
