Hawks' Murray out 2 weeks with sprained ankle
Atlanta Hawks guard Dejounte Murray will miss the next two weeks after spraining his ankle Wednesday, the team announced on Thursday.
Murray sustained the injury early in Atlanta's loss to the New York Knicks when he landed on RJ Barrett's foot, turning his left ankle in the process. He left the contest with just over nine minutes remaining in the first quarter and did not return.
The one-time All-Star joins a growing list of injuries for the Hawks, who fell to 13-12 on the season after the defeat. Atlanta was already without forward John Collins and wing De'Andre Hunter on Wednesday due to respective ankle and hip ailments.
Murray, 26, has yet to miss a game this season. He ranks second in scoring on the Hawks at 20.8 points per game and is also averaging 6.2 assists, 5.4 rebounds, and 1.8 steals. He's shooting 36.6% on 5.8 attempts from deep per contest.
