Utah Jazz: Sprained ankle may sideline Enes Kanter

NBA » Second-year center doubtful to play Friday vs.

"Sprain" is quickly becoming one of the most feared
words around the Jazz organization.

And why not? After Mo Williams suffered a "severely
sprained" right thumb, a second doctor advised the point guard undergo surgery
that will keep him out a minimum of six weeks.

So, forgive anyone who was a little skittish over
Thursday’s news that second-year center Enes Kanter suffered a sprained right
ankle in the waning moments of Wednesday’s win over Minnesota. He did not
practice Thursday and is listed as doubtful for Friday at Phoenix.

In fairness, a sprain is typically a relatively minor
and treatable injury, and there are no indications that Kanter will miss
significant time. But for a team that has been besieged by injuries, the latest
is just an added layer of frustration.

"It’s another one of our guys down," Jazz coach Tyrone
Corbin said. "We’ll miss him; hopefully it’s not very serious and he’ll get
back soon. We’ll just have to shorten and tighten the rotation."

Kanter scored 15 points and grabbed eight rebounds
Wednesday before suffering the injury.

Will he actually shorten the rotation or will Evans play? Against Phoenix they can probably play Marvin or even Demarre at the 4 some. Which could keep Burks and Demarre in the rotation.
