Danilo Gallinari will miss at least two weeks with a right ankle sprain, which he sustained in the first quarter of the Hawks’ loss in Brooklyn Wednesday.

The Hawks announced that Gallinari underwent an MRI Saturday morning at the practice facility, which confirmed a “right ankle sprain with associated swelling and inflammation.”

He will be reviewed in two weeks (Jan. 16), per the team, so Gallinari will not be available to play until that time, and he could miss more time depending on how that evaluation goes.
