Washington Wizards' Corey Kispert out 4-6 weeks with sprained left ankle

WASHINGTON -- Corey Kispert is expected to miss four to six weeks because of a sprained left ankle, the Wizards announced Wednesday.

Kispert stepped on an opponent's foot during Sunday's preseason game in Japan against the Golden State Warriors.

The Wizards open the regular season Oct. 19 at Indiana, so this timetable would certainly keep Kispert out for the first few games.

The 6-foot-6 Kispert, the 15th overall selection in the first round of the 2021 NBA draft, averaged 8.2 points in 77 games as a rookie.
