Atlanta Hawks star guard Trae Young will miss at least two games after an MRI on Thursday revealed a lateral left ankle sprain, the team announced.

He has already been ruled out of Friday’s game against the Miami Heat, and the team ruled him out for Sunday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks in its announcement. Young will return once the swelling and discomfort have dissipated.

Young sustained the injury after landing on the foot of New York Knicks center Norvel Pelle during the third quarter of the Hawks’ 137-127 overtime loss on Wednesday at Madison Square Garden.

Young, who finished with 20 points and 14 assists, pounded the floor with his fist before being helped off the court by a pair of teammates. He didn’t return to the game.
