Sophomore big man Evan Mobley is set to be sidelined for approximately one to two weeks after sustaining a sprained ankle, the Cleveland Cavaliers announced on Monday.

Mobley injured his ankle during a team workout on Saturday. His status remains yet to be seen if he will miss the Cavs’ season opener which will start in the next two weeks. 

He is slated to miss the Cavaliers’ preseason match against the Philadelphia 76ers and may likely have the other three exhibition games pending.

Mobley is fresh from a solid rookie year averaging 15.0 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.7 blocks, finishing second behind Toronto Raptors’ Scottie Barnes on the Rookie of the Year race.
