Clippers' Paul Pierce: Suffers sprained ankle

Pierce suffered a sprained right ankle during warmups of Tuesday's preseason game against the Kings and will be held out, Rowan Kavner of Clippers.com reports.

The severity of the injury is unclear, but with the Clippers' preseason schedule now complete, Pierce should have a little over a week to recover prior to the regular season opener on Oct. 27 against the Trail Blazers. Look for an update on his status in the coming few days, which should give us a better indication of a potential absence.
