WASHINGTON -- Wizards big man Thomas Bryant will miss time again due to the stress reaction injury to his right foot, head coach Scott Brooks announced Wednesday.

Bryant had been back for 11 games after missing six weeks due to the injury. He had been playing well before this recent setback with double-figure points in five straight games.

Bryant will now be out at least through the weekend and re-evaluated on Monday.

"It's the same, right foot. It's sore. Nothing to be overly concerned," Brooks said.

Brooks added the Wizards are going to be "cautious" with Bryant, given the nature of the injury. Stress reaction injuries can linger and the Wizards are well-aware given Bradley Beal's history with them.

Bryant, 22, is averaging 12.9 points and 7.4 rebounds per game this season. With him out, the Wizards may have to rely more on Moe Wagner as their backup center, though Wagner is on a minutes restriction having just come back from an ankle injury on Monday.
