Suns guard Bradley Beal to miss 2 weeks with ankle sprain in latest injury

The Suns announced Monday that Beal will miss two weeks recovering from a sprained ankle. First week of January is his next evaluation.

Beal fell on Donte DiVincenzo's foot after landing from a shot in the first quarter of the Suns' 139-122 loss to the Knicks on Friday. 

 In pain, Beal grabbed his right ankle immediately after hitting the court. The team's medical staff treated him on the ground for a while.

After making his free throws, Beal went to the locker room and never returned. DiVincenzo was issued a Flagrant 1 foul.

In the loss, Beal had six points and one assist in five minutes. Because of a back injury, he's only played six games this season but averaged 14.7 points.

After injuries sidelined the Big 3 last week, Beal debuted with Kevin Durant and Devin Booker. 

Beal could return in two weeks for any of the Suns' four first-week home games. Perhaps six games would be missed.
