Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Evan Mobley has a sprained right ankle and will miss approximately one to two weeks.
The Cavaliers updated Mobley’s status Monday, saying he would miss Wednesday’s preseason opener against the host Philadelphia 76ers.
Mobley will undergo treatment and rehab for now. With the given timeframe, he still could be ready in time for the regular-season opener Oct. 19 against the host Toronto Raptors.
Mobley was the third overall pick of the 2021 draft and made the NBA All-Rookie first team after averaging 15.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.7 blocks per game in 69 games (all starts) last season.
