New York Liberty guard Sabrina Ionescu is expected to miss one month after suffering an ankle sprain Friday night, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Charania reports the rookie has a Grade 3 left ankle sprain and will continue to be re-evaluated.

Ionescu appeared to roll her ankle near mid-court while trying to avoid defensive pressure in the first half of Friday night's game against the Atlanta Dream. Ionescu needed to be helped off the court and could not put enough weight on her ankle to walk.

The news is a huge blow to the Liberty's roster.
