From NBA Twitter and media reports

DeAndre Jordan suffered a sprained left ankle against the Pelicans.

The Brooklyn Nets' frontline will be without center DeAndre Jordan tonight.

Jordan has been ruled out as the Nets take on the Trail Blazers in Portland (10 ET, League Pass) because of his sprained left ankle. He suffered the injury Monday night against the New Orleans Pelicans and was listed as questionable entering the game.

The Brooklyn big man twisted his left foot awkwardly while running the floor and went down in a heap under the basket before ultimately exiting with a grimace and a limp. He is averaging 6.1 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 21.1 minutes.

 
The Nets took down the Pelicans on Monday night.

His absence means more minutes for third-year center Jarrett Allen, who had 18 points and 10 rebounds in 30 minutes against the Pelicans on Monday.
