Tough start for the Memphis Grizzlies — starting center Marc Gasol missed the start due to a sprained ankle.

The good news is that an MRI of the ankle showed no serious damage, he should be back soon.

That sounded like trouble because it meant Darrell Arthur had to start against Al Horford and the very athletic front line of the Atlanta Hawks. So how does that go? Horford is 0-1 early in the game while Arthur scores a quick 13 points on 6-of-7 shooting. However, the Hawks still jumped out to an early lead.

No word on when Gasol will return to the lineup, but it sounds more day-to-day now.
