TORONTO -- Toronto Raptors center Rasho Nesterovic will miss one to two weeks with a sprained right ankle.

He will not travel with the Raptors on an upcoming road trip to Dallas and Memphis, the team said Sunday, when Maceo Baston started in Nesterovic's place in Toronto's game against Golden State.

Nesterovic was injured in the third quarter of last Wednesday's home loss to Utah, when he landed on the foot of Mehmet Okur after coming down with a rebound.

Nesterovic is averaging 3.0 points and 4.8 rebounds per game this season.
