Knicks center DeAndre Jordan will miss an undetermined amount of time with a sprained left ankle, head coach David Fizdale said on Sunday.
Jordan, who suffered the injury at Saturday's practice, will not play in Sunday's matchup against the San Antonio Spurs.
The Knicks hope Jordan, who has been the starting center since New York acquired him in the blockbuster Kristaps Porzingis trade, won't miss too much time. Fizdale said the injury initially looked worse than it was after he was evaluated.
Jordan, 30, has averaged 11.8 points and 12 rebounds in eight games since joining the Knicks, and has averaged 11.1 points and 13.5 rebounds including his time with the Dallas Mavericks this season.
Without Jordan, rookie Mitchell Robinson is expected to see more time on the court.
The Knicks are also playing without second-year guard Frank Ntilikina, who has been dealing with a groin injury.
