Trail Blazers' Justise Winslow out at least 2 weeks with grade 2 ankle sprain

Portland Trail Blazers forward Justise Winslow will miss at least two weeks with a grade 2 ankle sprain, the team announced Monday.

Winslow injured his left ankle during a 101-98 loss at Oklahoma City on Wednesday and left the game in the third quarter. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks, according to the team.

"He does so much for us on both sides of the floor,'' coach Chauncey Billups said. "It (stinks) to lose him for that amount of time. I think we all feel a little relieved because it could have been worse.''

A eighth-year pro out of Duke who played last season for the LA Clippers and Trail Blazers, Winslow is averaging 6.8 points, 5 rebounds and 3.4 assists through 29 games.

Winslow owns career averages of 8.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists over 344 games (128 starts) with the Miami Heat, Memphis Grizzlies, Los Angeles and Portland.
