The Indiana Pacers will be without their star center for the next two games, at least.

The Pacers announced Friday that third-year player Myles Turner will miss the Portland game Friday and the game at Miami on Saturday. He has been diagnosed with a concussion and sore neck.

Turner was injured during the Pacers’ season-opening win over Brooklyn.

Once his symptoms have resolved, Turner will begin the NBA concussion protocol for return to play.
