 Markkaken is expected to miss at least two weeks with the sprained right ankle he suffered in Sunday's 94-87 win over the Thunder, sources familiar with his injury situation tell Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The Scoop:Markkanen sat out Monday's 95-93 win over the Knicks with the injury and was spotted walking out of the arena on crutches while sporting a walking boot -- a sign that he's dealing with something that's more than a day-to-day concern. The Cavaliers likely won't have a firm timeline for Markkanen's return until the swelling in his right ankle subsides, but fantasy managers should prepare for his absence to stretch through the first week of February, if not longer. Dean Wade entered the starting five in Markkanen's stead Monday, finishing with 13 points (4-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and three steals in 35 minutes.

Lauri Markkanen: Expected to miss multiple games
Cavaliers head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Monday that Markkanen (ankle) is still being evaluated, but he's expected to miss a few games, Evan Dammarell of WKYC 3News reports.

The Scoop: Markkanen left Saturday's game against the Thunder after suffering the injury and was already ruled out for Monday's contest against the Knicks. X-rays on his right ankle came back negative, so that provides at least a little optimism for his status moving forward, but he's still expected to be sidelined for at least a week. Nonetheless, Bickerstaff said the Cavaliers will have to play more traditional lineups without their 7-foot small forward available. With that said, expect Dean Wade, Cedi Osman and Lamar Stevens all to be candidates for increased roles during Markkanen's prolonged absence.

Lauri Markkanen: Won't play Monday
Markkanen (ankle) won't play Monday against the Knicks.

The Scoop: Markkanen had X-rays on his right ankle come back negative after leaving Saturday's game against the Thunder, but the Cavaliers will elect to be cautious and keep him sidelined Monday. In his absence, Cedi Osman and Lamar Stevens are both candidates for increased roles.

Lauri Markkanen: X-rays return negative
Markkanen had X-rays on his right ankle sprain come back negative after leaving Saturday's game against the Thunder, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The Scoop: The 24-year-old had nine points (3-4 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two rebounds and a block before going down with the injury Saturday. According to Fedor, the "sense" is Markkanen is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which could spell a lengthy absence. However, the team has yet to officially announce the severity of the injury.

Lauri Markkanen: Sprains right ankle
Markkanen exited Saturday's game against the Thunder with a right ankle sprain and will not return, Serena Winters of Bally Sports Cleveland reports.

The Scoop: Markkanen had to be helped off the floor by teammates, so it's no surprise that he won't be able to return. The severity of the injury and Markkanen's expected return date are not yet clear.
