The Portland Trail Blazers will be without their starting power forward for a few weeks.

Al-Farouq Aminu is expected to miss two-to-three weeks while recovering from a right ankle sprain, reports Blazers beat reporter Casey Holdahl.

Aminu rolled his ankle during Wednesday's loss to the Utah Jazz, and sat out Thursday's victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

He shared this photo following the 113-110 win:

Great win and thank you to everyone that has been wishing me well. #farouqisonfire🔥🔥🔥 #str8 #rip

The 27-year-old averaged 9.4 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.3 steals in 30 minutes over Portland's first eight contests.

Noah Vonleh started at the four-spot in his stead Thursday, and figures to continue to do so.
