BY foxsports • April 6, 2011

Denver Nuggets center Timofey Mozgov is out 10 to 14 days with sprains in his left knee and ankle.

MRIs on Wednesday revealed a Grade 1 MCL sprain in his left knee and a Grade 2 deltoid ligament sprain in his left ankle, the team said. He has no fractures.

Mozgov was injured in the first quarter of Denver's 101-94 loss to Oklahoma City on Tuesday night and stayed behind when his teammates flew to Dallas for a game against the Mavericks on Wednesday night.

Mozgov was coming off his best game since being traded from the New York Knicks on Feb. 22 as part of the Carmelo Anthony blockbuster deal.
