Kyle An­der­son is ex­pected to miss two to four weeks with a grade II an­kle sprain, the Griz­zlies an­nounced Sun­day.

The team’s start­ing small for­ward suf­fered the sprain dur­ing a loss at the Mi­ami Heat on Satur­day.

An­der­son’s in­jury comes just days after the Griz­zlies lost sec­ond-year wing Dil­lon Brooks for the sea­son to a rup­tured toe lig­a­ment.

Mem­phis (19-23) plays at the surg­ing Rock­ets (24-17) on Mon­day (7 p.m., Fox Sports South­east).

Newly ac­quired wing Justin Hol­i­day could be in line for An­der­son’s start­ing spot dur­ing An­der­son’s ab­sence. Omri Casspi prob­a­bly will play a larger role, too.

Coach J.B. Bick­er­staff also played a lineup on Satur­day that fea­tured Jamy­chal Green at small for­ward in­stead of power for­ward.
