CLEVELAND (AP) Cavaliers starting forward Evan Mobley will miss time with a sprained right ankle suffered during practice, an injury that could sideline him for the start of the regular season in two weeks.

Mobley injured his ankle during a workout on Saturday. The team said Monday that an MRI confirmed the injury and that the 7-footer will be out "approximately 1-2 weeks."

Mobley will miss Wednesday's exhibition game at Philadelphia. The Cavs have three preseason games next week before opening the season on Oct. 19 in Toronto. Their home opener is Oct. 23.
