Ryan Anderson will miss two weeks with a sprained right ankle, Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni announced before Sunday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder at Toyota Center.
“All the MRIs and tests came back negative,” D’Antoni said. “Now, it’s just a matter of time. They’re saying two weeks. So be it. The important thing is he can play two or three games before we get in the playoffs and it looks like he’ll be on that timetable. We won’t push it.”
Two weeks would put Anderson’s return for the Rockets game on April 9 in Sacramento, and would allow him to play the final three games of the regular season.
Anderson sprained his ankle in the Rockets win over New Orleans Friday night. He has played in 68 of the Rockets first 72 games of the season, his first with the team after signing a four-year contract in July.
