Ankle injury to sideline Hawks' Taurean Prince at least 3 weeks

NBA, Atlanta Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks say forward Taurean Prince will miss at least three weeks with a left ankle injury.

Prince was hurt Monday when he landed on Shaun Livingston's foot during Atlanta's 128-111 loss to the Golden State Warriors.

X-rays were negative, but an MRI on Tuesday revealed that Prince has a ligament sprain, bone bruise and soft tissue inflammation. The team says he'll be re-evaluated in three weeks.

Prince, a third-year player out of Baylor, is averaging 15.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game for Atlanta (5-19).
