  • 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 that 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. The injury will be re-evaluated at the end of next week.
