Belinelli to miss at least 10 days

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors guard Marco Belinelli will be sidelined at least 10 days after spraining his right ankle last weekend.

The second-year pro from Italy was injured in the fourth quarter of a victory over Indiana, landing on an opponent's leg after taking a shot. He recently joined the starting lineup, showing improved shooting and defense while averaging 13.8 points the past 19 games.

Belinelli joins Monta Ellis, Stephen Jackson and Brandan Wright on a long list of injured regulars for the Warriors (11-28), who host Sacramento on Wednesday night.

Jackson has missed three straight games with a hamstring injury. Wright is expected to be out until late January after partially dislocating his left shoulder. Ellis hasn't played this season after injuring his leg during the summer.
