Suns point guard Goran Dragic is expected to miss the team’s next two games after he sprained the left ankle that he also had injured in the preseason.

Dragic sprained the ankle while scoring on a fastbreak early in the third quarter of the Suns’ 103-96 loss Sunday night at Oklahoma City. He left the game and did not return, saying it felt worse than when he sprained the same ankle on Oct. 17 at Sacramento because of a fastbreak foul by Kings guard Jimmer Fredette.

“I’m guessing he probably won’t go these couple of games,” Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said of the road trip’s final stops against New Orleans on Tuesday night and San Antonio on Wednesday night.

With progress, that could change for Dragic as it did in the preseason when he unexpectedly returned early for the final preseason game at Denver. Dragic said Monday that his ankle swelling had reduced.

Dragic is averaging 13.7 points and 5.3 assists with 46 percent shooting in three games, the last two of which he had to leave early in the third quarter for injury. Dragic hit his head against the floor in Friday night’s home win against Utah and left with blurred vision.
