RJ Barrett suffered a right ankle sprain in the Knicks loss to the Phoenix Suns on Thursday.
The rookie will be reevaluated in a week, but interim head coach Mike Miller believes Barrett will bounce back quickly from the injury,
"That's what I found out last night, that he's never really had a high ankle sprain like that," said Miller. "He'll bounce back quick."
While this ankle sprain is a bit of a setback for the third overall pick in last year's draft, he has impressed his veteran teammates this season with how he's handled himself.
"He's been great. Through the highs and lows, he's stayed even-keeled," said Julius Randle. "Demeanor's been great, his approach of how he works and stuff like that's been amazing, so he's got a bright future ahead of him."
