font size    

Steve Francis will be sidelined from the New York Knicks after he suffered a sprained left ankle in a loss to San Antonio on Monday, according to the club Tuesday.

Francis was injured in the first quarter of the 105-93 loss to the Spurs when he made contact with San Antonio forward Bruce Bowen.

The 29-year-old guard has three years and 48.5 million dollars remaining on his contract after joining New York from Orlando just before last season's transfer deadline.

The Knicks, off to a 1-3 start, have received 10.5 points and 5.3 assists a game from Francis so far this season. He averaged 14.4 points and 4.9 assists in 70 games last season with Orlando and New York.

Francis has a career average of 19 points, 6.3 assists and 5.8 rebounds in 526 NBA games with Orlando, New York and the Houston Rockets, where he won NBA Co-Rookie of the Year honors.

He was sent to the Magic in a 2004 deal that sent Tracy McGrady to the Rockets.
