NEW YORK -- The New York Knicks say forward Danilo Gallinari is expected to miss two to three weeks with a sprained left knee.

Gallinari was hurt Sunday during the fourth quarter of a 98-92 victory over Indiana when Pacers swingman Brandon Rush lost his balance after driving for a layup and his right shoulder collided with Gallinari's knee.

Gallinari said after the game he didn't think the injury was much to worry about, and an MRI exam on Monday confirmed it was only a mild sprain.

The forward from Italy is fourth on the team with 15.3 points per game.
