Los Angeles Lakers guard Avery Bradley will be re-evaluated in one-to-two weeks after suffering a hairline fracture in a non-weight bearing bone in his right leg, the team announced Friday.

Bradley was initially listed as probable for Friday's game against the Sacramento Kings. However, an MRI taken on Thursday evening revealed the injury.

The 28-year-old missed last week's game against the Chicago Bulls due to a lower right leg contusion suffered on Nov. 3 versus the San Antonio Spurs.

Bradley signed a two-year, $9.7-million deal with the Lakers this offseason. The 10-year veteran is a noted 3-point shooter but has struggled from distance this season, connecting at a 28.6% clip through 10 appearances.

However, Bradley has been a welcome addition to the Lakers' top-ranked defense. L.A. has allowed just 98.6 points per 100 possessions with the former first-round pick on the floor, per NBA.com.

With Kentavious Caldwell-Pope listed as questionable for Friday's game, guard Alex Caruso will likely be in line for expanded minutes.
