What is Desmond Bane’s injury?

Further evaluation of Bane’s injury determined that he suffered a Grade 2 sprain of his right big toe. According to the Grizzlies, Bane suffered the injury against the Timberwolves on Nov. 11.

Through 12 games, Bane has posted averages of 24.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game. The 24-year-old sharpshooter is hitting 3.8 3s per game at an insane 45.1 percent clip.

In Bane’s absence, the Grizzlies will look to sharpshooter John Konchar and rookie wing Jake LaRavia to provide production on both ends of the floor.
