Tuesday night in some jostling under the basket, Ron Artest and Yi Jianlian collided and you could see Yi’s knee buckle a little. Yi still got called for the foul on Ron Ron, of course.

Wednesday Yi had an MRI that has showed a sprain in the knee and he will be out two to four weeks, according to a tweet from Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

This is the right knee, the same one where an injury forced Yi to miss nine games earlier this season, so expect the Wizards to be cautious with this one.
