Grizzlies lose forward Anderson for 2-4 weeks

Kyle Anderson is helped off the floor by teammates after spraining his left ankle Saturday.

The Memphis Grizzlies will be without forward Kyle Anderson for several weeks because of a sprained left ankle.

The team announced Sunday that Anderson will miss two to four weeks with a grade two sprain, suffered in the second quarter of a game against the Miami Heat on Saturday.

Anderson, 25,  is averaging 7.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.2 steals in almost 29.7 minutes in 41 games (38 starts) for the Grizzlies this season, shooting 54.3 percent from the field, 26.5 percent from beyond the 3-point arc and 57.6 percent from the free-throw line.

He was signed by Memphis as a restricted free agent last summer when the San Antonio Spurs opted not to match the four-year, $37.2 million offer sheet from the Grizzlies (19-23), who visit the Houston Rockets (24-18) on Monday night.
