EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Vince Carter of the New Jersey Nets will be sidelined indefinitely with a sprained right ankle.
An MRI on Monday revealed Carter sustained a Grade 1 sprain on Saturday night against the Boston Celtics, Nets president Rod Thorn said Monday. There is no timetable for Carter's return.
The Nets played the New Orleans Hornets on Monday night.
The eight-time All-Star was hurt in the third quarter of a 112-101 loss to Boston. He landed on the foot of Celtics forward Paul Pierce after a dunk.
Carter averaged 17.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists through the first six games. He signed a four-year contract valued at about $65 million in the offseason.
