Detroit Pistons center Jalen Duren is expected to miss two weeks after spraining his left ankle during Wednesday's contest against the Memphis Grizzlies, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Duren was injured during the final two minutes of regulation as he corralled a rebound. The Memphis product remained on the floor and needed to be assisted off the court.

Duren missed five games earlier this season due to an ankle injury.

The second-year center has been a bright spot for the Pistons when healthy, averaging 12.6 points, 10.9 boards, 2.5 assists, and 1.4 blocks across 14 appearances this season.

Detroit acquired Duren's rights in a draft-night deal. He earned NBA All-Rookie second-team honors last season.
