Las Vegas Aces All-Star A’ja Wilson will likely be out for "weeks," coach Bill Laimbeer said Sunday, reports Las Vegas Review-Journal's Sam Gordon. 

According to Gordon, Laimbeer will consider adding another player in free agency as free agents can sign for the rest of the season starting Aug. 5.

Photos showed the 22-year-old Wilson in a walking boot and using a crutch.

Wilson left Friday's game against the Seattle Storm with a sprained left ankle after colliding with a teammate and collapsing to the floor in the third quarter of the loss.
