WASHINGTON -- Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan was hospitalized with a blood clot in his left leg and will miss the next two games.

Jordan, 49, felt discomfort in his leg and was hospitalized Thursday night after consulting with a team trainer, the Wizards said Friday. He was resting comfortably and was expected to remain in the hospital for several days.

Assistant Mike O'Koren will coach the team during Jordan's absence. The Wizards play the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday night and the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

Jordan is in his second season with the Wizards, after four years as an assistant with the New Jersey Nets. He also coached the Sacramento Kings in the 1997-98 season.
