Nets’ Thomas (ankle sprain) out at least 2 weeks

Brooklyn Nets guard Cam Thomas will be sidelined at least two weeks with a left ankle sprain.

An MRI confirmed the injury to one of this season’s breakout stars, the Nets announced Thursday.

He was injured when he stepped on Clippers forward P.J. Tucker’s foot in the third quarter in Wednesday’s 100-93 win at home against Los Angeles.

The third-year player is averaging a team-high 26.9 points with 3.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists through eight games (seven starts) this season.

Brooklyn’s 2021 first-round pick (27th overall) averaged 8.5 points as a rookie and 10.6 per game in 2022-23.
