Jalen Brunson will miss at least the next 4 games with a sprained right shoulder.
Brunson, who is averaging 8.2 points and 3.3 assists this season, suffered the injury on Saturday.
"He will travel and begin rehabbing and we'll see where we are then. We've got J.J. [Barea], who is always ready. He'll be in the middle of it. He's a great luxury to have sitting there," said Rick Carlisle.
