Brooklyn Nets guard Landry Shamet suffered a right ankle injury in their game against the Washington Wizards on Sunday night. His MRI results eventually returned clean but he will not be joining the team on its three-game road trip as they face the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday, per ESPN‘s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Shamet headed straight to the locker rooms after he rolled his ankle in the third quarter against the Wizards. He finished the game with three points, a rebound, and a steal through 12 minutes of action on the floor.

Even without the presence of the Wichita product, the Nets were still able to fend off the Wizards' attack led by Russell Westbrook who produced 29 points, 13 rebounds, and 13 assists for Washington. However, the stellar performances of Kyrie Irving and James Harden proved to be the difference as the former notched 28 points while the latter scored 26 points en route to a 113-106 victory.

With the win, the Nets further improved to a 29-14 record to maintain their hold of the second spot in the Eastern Conference. Amid Shamet's absence, the Nets will proceed to face the Trail Blazers on the road before visiting the Utah Jazz and Detroit Pistons afterward.

The team's other swingmen in Joe Harris, Tyler Johnson, and Bruce Brown are all expected to take on Shamet's minutes in their coming games. Even with a depleted lineup, the Nets are still looking to carry over their winning momentum with both Kyrie Irving and James Harden at the forefront of the team.
