Anderson out 2-4 weeks with ankle sprain
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.
