CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Bulls expect forward Lauri Markkanen to miss four to six weeks because of an injured right hip.

The 7-footer from Finland had an MRI on Thursday after experiencing soreness in the hip for about a week.

"It hasn't really gotten worse, but it's been there for a couple of games," he said Friday. "We decided to get an MRI before we go on the road."
