Los Angeles Clippers guard Landry Shamet was diagnosed with a Grade 2 high left ankle sprain following an MRI, reports ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Though the scan ruled out a serious injury for the 22-year-old, a timeline for his return has yet to be determined.

Shamet was injured in the third quarter of the Clippers' 98-88 win over the Toronto Raptors on Monday. The second-year guard was defending a drive by Fred VanVleet when he fell to the floor in pain. He had to be helped off the court and did not return to the contest.

He finished Monday's game with six points, two assists, and one rebound in 18 minutes.

Shamet was drafted 26th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in 2018 but was shipped to the Clippers midway through his rookie season in a multi-player swap that sent Tobias Harris to Philadelphia.

He was quickly inserted into the Clippers' starting lineup and averaged 10.9 points in 25 games with the club last season. Shamet also shot 45% on six 3-pointers per game.

In 10 games this campaign, the sophomore is averaging 9.1 points, 1.7 assists, and 1.5 rebounds while playing 29.4 minutes per contest.

Fortunately for the Clippers, Shamet's absence will be mitigated by the return of All-Star swingman Paul George, who is expected to make his long-awaited team debut Thursday against the New Orleans Pelicans.
