The Atlanta Hawks announced on Thursday that guard Dejounte Murray will be out for two weeks due to a left ankle sprain.
In the Hawks' loss to the Knicks on Wednesday, the guard injured his left ankle.
Murray was forced to miss the Atlanta Hawks' 113-89 road loss to the New York Knicks on Wednesday, adding to the team's growing list of significant injuries.
The Hawks were already missing forwards John Collins and De'Andre Hunter for Wednesday's game,
and they ended up trailing by as many as 28 points to suffer their fifth loss in seven games.
Atlanta plays the Brooklyn Nets on the road on Friday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBA League Pass).
The Hawks' top guard Trae Young added, "Obviously we were trying to find a rhythm with Dejounte,
and it's tough with people being in and out right now." But if we can just get through this difficult period, we'll be OK once everyone returns.
Murray is currently playing for the Hawks in his first season after being named an All-Star with the San Antonio Spurs previous year.
He is shooting 45.2% overall and 36.6% on three-pointers, and he averages 20.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and 1.8 steals a game.
