Iowa State guard DeAndre Kane left in the final minute of the Cyclones' 87-82 loss at Oklahoma with a left ankle injury.

Kane had X-rays taken after the game, which showed no break, according to USA Today. The Ames Tribune posted a photo of Kane on crutches after the game. However, his injury reportedly does not appear to be a high ankle sprain, either.

Kane was helped off the court after scoring a team-high 23 points. He entered Saturday averaging 16.1 points, 7.1 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game.

Iowa State suffered its first loss of the season after winning its first 14 games, but remains atop the Big 12. Oklahoma State improved to 13-3.

The Cyclones play Kansas on Monday. It is not known how long Kane will be out.

NBA

The Atlanta Hawks signed forward James Nunnally to a 10-day contract, the team announced Saturday.

Nunnally averaged 18.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 33.6 minutes over 19 starts with the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Development League this season. He was named to the All-Showcase first team by the NBA scouts and basketball operations personnel after this week's NBA D-League Showcase in Reno, Nev.

Nunnally averaged 10.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 19.7 minutes over 49 games with Bakersfield last season. He was undrafted out of UC Santa Barbara. He spent training camp in 2013 with the Phoenix Suns and played three preseason games.

NHL

The Buffalo Sabres announced they activated forward Cody Hodgson from injured reserve, and also recalled Brayden McNabb from Rochester of the AHL and sent defensemen Rasmus Ristolainen and Johan Larsson to Rochester.

Center Mikhail Grigorenko was loaned to the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Ristolainen and Grigorenko recently returned from the World Junior Hockey Championships in Malmo, Sweden. Ristolainen scored the game-winning goal in overtime for Finland in the final.

Hodgson has eight goals and 11 assists in 33 games this season. He has been out since Dec. 19 with an upper-body injury.

The Sabres' next game is Sunday at the Washington Capitals.

---The St. Louis Blues signed forward Ryan Reaves to a four-year, $4.5 million contract extension Saturday. Reaves, 26, has two goals, three assists and 65 penalty minutes in 26 games this season.

A fifth-round draft pick of the Blues in 2005, Reaves has 11 goals, eight assists and 346 penalty minutes in 157 career NHL games.
