The San Antonio Spurs will be without forward Kyle Anderson for two to three weeks with a sprained MCL in his left knee, league sources told ESPN.

Anderson underwent an MRI in San Antonio on Monday, hours after a noncontact injury forced him to leave the Spurs’ 90-87 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday.

“It looked really ugly. I think it’ll probably be maybe two weeks, something like that, and he’ll be back with us,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “Somebody else will have to fill in, just like they did for Tony [Parker] and Kawhi [Leonard]. Everybody gets injuries. You’ve just got to deal with it.”

Anderson, 24, has been starting in place of Leonard, an All-NBA forward, this season. He has averaged nine points, six rebounds and three assists in 22 games this season.

Leonard has been rehabbing toward a fairly imminent return to the lineup.

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul will miss Saturday’s Game 6 of the Western Conference finals at Golden State with a right hamstring strain, the team announced Friday.

Paul will travel with the Rockets to Oakland, California, for the game, coach Mike D’Antoni said, and will be re-evaluated after the team returns to Houston.

“It’s obviously not something we wanted,” D’Antoni said before Friday’s practice. “I hate it for him above all. He’s practically won us the past two games. But it’s a great opportunity for other guys, and we have plenty to choose from. We’ll be ready.”

Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said there’s an “overwhelming likelihood” that the team will keep its No. 1 overall pick and not trade it away.

McDonough made the comment Friday after the first of what will be many pre-draft workouts of players on the Suns’ practice court.

The leading candidates for that No. 1 pick in June’s NBA draft almost certainly will be worked out privately, with the exception of Luka Doncic, the European sensation who still is playing in Spain.
