The body count continued to pile up, and suddenly Jabari Parker may be relevant again.

Bobby Portis suffered a sprained right ankle in the fourth-quarter loss to Brooklyn on Wednesday night, and an MRI on Thursday showed Portis has a sprain that will sideline him two-to-four weeks.

Portis was backing up Lauri Markkanen at the four-spot, with Parker moved back to the three, backing up Justin Holiday and Chandler Hutchison. With Portis down, however, Parker can move back to his natural spot at the four.
