As ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported, Boston Celtics center Kristaps Porzingis is expected to miss a “minimum of several games” with a right soleus strain suffered in Game 4.

There’s no official timetable for his return to action, however, it’s the same injury suffered by the Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo who hasn’t played so far in the postseason.

Porzingis left the court in the first half of Game 4 against Miami and needed a walking boot as a precaution. It was a no-contact injury.

Acquired last offseason, Porzingis averaged 20.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists during the regular season, helping Boston to a league-best 64-18 record and the No. 1 seed in the playoffs.

The Celtics are up 3-1 in the best-of-seven series and can close out the Heat at TD Garden in Game 5.
