MEMPHIS, Tennessee — Memphis Grizzlies wing Desmond Bane will be sidelined for at least six weeks with a Grade 3 left ankle sprain the NBA team announced Sunday.

Bane injured his ankle on Friday in a game against the Clippers. The team said he will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

Memphis continues to deal with a series of injuries that has cut deep into the team’s rotation.


Over the last week, leading scorer Ja Morant had season-ending shoulder surgery, and Marcus Smart’s injury to his right ring finger will keep him out at least six weeks.


The Grizzlies also lost forward Jake LaRavia with a left ankle sprain against the New York Knicks on Saturday.

Bane, who is averaging 24.4 points and 5.3 assists this season, will be re-evaluated in three weeks according to the team.
