Atlanta Hawks forward Taurean Prince will miss at least three weeks after injuring his left ankle in Monday's game against the Golden State Warriors, the team announced.
He underwent an MRI scan on Tuesday which revealed he had a ligament sprain, bone bruising and associated soft tissue inflammation.
Prince, 24, will be re-evaluated in approximately three weeks.
He suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Atlanta's loss to the Warriors on Monday when he landed on Golden State guard Shaun Livingston after taking a shot.
