Cody Zeller is suffering from a bone bruise along his right knee that will keep him out for an indefinite amount of time.

Zeller first suffered the injury during the playoffs and it flared up during Team USA scrimmages in July.

"He’s not even doing the non-contact stuff at this stage, so he has a long way to go," said Steve Clifford.

Roy Hibbert has started for the Charlotte Hornets at center in Zeller's absence.
