PHOENIX -- Phoenix Suns center Kurt Thomas will be sidelined
four to six weeks with an elbow injury, the team said Tuesday.

Thomas, who comes off the bench, hyperextended his left elbow in
the first quarter of Monday's game at Memphis. He was examined in
Phoenix and will wear a brace on his elbow to help it heal.

He is averaging 5.7 points and 5.7 rebounds this season.

The Suns will play at Houston on Wednesday night.
