KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. -- Andy Roddick's right wrist injury is only a mild sprain and he should resume light activity in five days.

Roddick hurt his wrist Friday during his opening match at the Nasdaq-100 Open and retired trailing Fernando Verdasco in the second set. He underwent an MRI exam that confirmed the mild sprain, ATP Tour trainer Doug Spreen said Saturday.

Roddick's next scheduled tournament is at Houston beginning April 18.
