Golden State Warriors center Kevon Looney will miss at least the "next couple games" after spraining his left ankle during the first half of Tuesday's 111-107 loss to the Boston Celtics, head coach Steve Kerr said.

An MRI late Tuesday confirmed the sprain, according to the Warriors.

"I don't expect him to play the next couple of games," Kerr said in a video conference with reporters after the game. "It was a significant enough sprain where it looks like he'll be out for a little bit."

The injury occurred with a little over two minutes to play in the first half. Looney appeared to step wrong as his ankle turned. He stayed in the game for a few more moments but eventually was replaced by Juan Toscano-Anderson. Looney went straight to the locker room and never returned.
