Anderson injures ankle tangling with Cousins (0:41)

While trying to defend DeMarcus Cousins, Ryan Anderson lands awkwardly on Cousins' foot. The result is a sprained ankle for Anderson, which will keep him out for two weeks. (0:41)

HOUSTON -- Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said Sunday starting power forward Ryan Anderson will miss the next two weeks with a sprained right ankle.

D'Antoni said tests on Anderson's ankle came back negative.

Anderson suffered the injury in Friday's victory over the New Orleans Pelicans as he defended a shot against DeMarcus Cousins.

"The important thing is he can play two or three games before we get into the playoffs," D'Antoni said. "And it looks like he will be on that timetable, we won't push it, and we'll deal with whatever and hopefully he'll be back sooner rather than later."

On the season, Anderson is averaging 13.5 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. With Anderson out of Sunday's lineup against Oklahoma City, the Rockets will start Eric Gordon.
