Grizzlies' Desmond Bane (right toe) out 2-3 weeks

Memphis' third-year swingman is enjoying a career-best season in several statistical categories.

Desmond Bane is averaging 24.7 ppg this season for the Grizzlies.

Memphis Grizzlies guard Desmond Bane will be out of the lineup for 2-3 weeks, the team announced today, after determining he has a sprained right big toe.

Per the team, the injury occurred in a 114-103 win against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Nov. 11. Bane is in the midst of a breakout season, averaging career highs in scoring (24.7 points per game), assists (4.8 apg), rebounds (4.9 rpg), shooting percentage (46.5%) and 3-point percentage (45.1%).

The third-year player ranks 15th in the NBA in scoring and ranks sixth in the league with 46 made 3-pointers.

He will miss tonight’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans (7:30 ET, TNT) and if he returns in two weeks, he would likely be able to play on Nov. 30 on the road against the Timberwolves. A three-week timeline would have him back in the lineup in the first week of December, when Memphis plays six of its first seven games that month at home.
