Young went up for a floater against the New York Knicks and landed awkwardly on his left foot. After severely rolling his ankle, he slumped to the court and immediately yelled out in pain.

Medical personnel initially diagnosed Young with a left ankle sprain, but the severity wasn’t known immediately. Thankfully, the injury doesn’t appear to be too bad.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski revealed Young suffered a Grade 2 lateral sprain. The star point guard isn’t expected to miss too much time.

  NBA Rookie Rankings: Anthony Edwards continues impressive scoring, Malachi Flynn proves himself with Raptors We're reaching the final month of the season and rookies are continuing to developNow moving on to this week's rookie rankings. These rankings will reflect a rookie's performance on a week-to-week basis only, not the collective season, so these aren't Rookie of the Year standings. With that straightened out, here is a look at the top rookies this week.

“An MRI revealed a Grade 2 lateral sprain on Atlanta All-Star guard Trae Young’s left ankle, source tells ESPN,” Woj said on Twitter. “He’s expected to be able to return to play once swelling and discomfort are gone. Best possible news after Wednesday night’s injury at MSG.”

Young is in the midst of yet another strong season as the Hawks fight for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The former Oklahoma standout is averaging over 25 points and a career-high 9.6 assists per game.

Atlanta currently holds the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference. Without Trae Young on the court, the team will need balanced scoring to keep pace in a tight playoff race.

NBA Power Rankings: Nets jump up to top as numerous top teams stumble .
Brooklyn got Kevin Durant back, won a couple of big games, and that moves them into the top slot. 1. Nets (42-20, Last Week No. 7). Steve Nash has a legitimate Coach of the Year case: His team is 42-20 and in first place in the East, with a +4.5 net rating and the best offense in the NBA. All that despite injuries forcing constant lineup adjustments and Nash having to reach deep into his bench (Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving have played just seven games together). Nash’s calm and cool style is exactly what the Nets needed in a coach’s demeanor.
