PHOENIX -- Phoenix Suns center Robin Lopez will treat his back injury with rest, medication and rehabilitation following a visit to a specialist on Sunday.

The treatment was prescribed by Dr. Christopher Huston of The Orthopedic Clinic Association after an MRI showed Lopez had a bulging disk. According to a statement released by the Suns, Lopez will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

The 7-foot, second-year pro from Stanford has been a significant contributor since being added to the starting lineup. Phoenix had won six in a row and 20 of 25 going into Sunday's game at Minnesota.
