Grizzlies forward Gay inactive with ankle injury

MEMPHIS, Tenn.(AP) — Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay was inactive for
Monday night’s game against the Washington Wizards because of a
sprained left ankle, leaving Memphis without its leading scorer.

Gay first injured the ankle Dec. 16 in the Grizzlies’ 110-97
loss to the Atlanta Hawks. He left the game but played in the
four games since, averaging almost 19 points over that span.

He reaggravated the injury Saturday in a loss at Dallas.

Gay, who averages 20.6 points and 6.1 rebounds, had started all
but one game this season: Nov. 30 at Utah. He was out for
personal reasons.

DeMarre Carroll, a rookie out of Missouri, started his first NBA
game in place of Gay. Carroll averages 3.6 points and 2.6
rebounds in 27 games.
