San Antonio Spurs' Kyle Anderson will be out with injury to his left knee for 2-3 weeks according to sources at ESPN.

Anderson suffered a left MCL knee sprain in the second half of the Spurs' recent loss to the Thunder. Anderson underwent an MRI in San Antonio.

As he was going up for a basket, a Thunder player landed on his leg which sent Kyle to the court in pain. He was carried out of the court.

Our lead writer here at the Spurs Zone spoke with people close to Anderson and he was told Kyle's initial thoughts to them was the knee injury was feeling "painful."

Prior to the injury, Kyle was having a career-season, averaging career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, field goal percentage and free throw percentage in a starting role in place of the injured Kawhi Leonard.

Anderson will not play versus the Pistons tonight in San Antonio.
