Atlanta Hawks forward Taurean Prince sustained a left ankle injury during the fourth quarter of last night’s contest vs. the Warriors. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed today at the Emory Sports Medicine Complex revealed a ligament sprain, bone bruise and associated soft tissue inflammation.
He’ll be re-evaluated in approximately three weeks.
The Hawks are 5-19 this season through Monday’s games, which ties them with the Bulls for the worst record in the Eastern conference. Prince, who has started 20 of the 21 games he’s played in this season, is third on the team in scoring at 15.0 ppg.
