Lopez (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Indiana, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Lopez has posted a double-double in two of his last four appearances, averaging 21.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 4.5 blocks in 36.3 minutes per game. However, he'll sit due to his sore left ankle Thursday, which should lead to increased playing time for Bobby Portis.
