CHICAGO -- Chicago Bulls forward Carlos Boozer will miss Monday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies because of a sprained ankle.

Boozer suffered the injury in the final seconds of the Bulls' 96-93 victory over the Miami Heat on Saturday. He reportedly left the United Center in a walking boot.

Boozer, who is averaging 20.1 points and 10.1 rebounds, missed 15 games earlier this season because of a broken finger.
