Luka Doncic Exits Game With Sprained Ankle


A sprained ankle forced Luka Doncic to exit Dallas’ Saturday night contest in the first quarter of action. ESPN’s Tim MacMahon confirms the sprain and notes that x-rays performed on the injury have come back negative.

The Mavericks guard sprained the ankle while driving into the key early against the Miami Heat, he hit the deck and appeared to grab high up on his ankle leading some to speculate that it could be a high ankle sprain.

We’ve seen several prominent NBA players fall victims to ankle sprains so far this season, most recently Sacramento’s De’Aaron Fox and Orlando’s Aaron Gordon. Those two examples illustrate just how different the prognosis for ankle sprains can be.

Fox was projected to miss three-to-four weeks with his ankle sprain and is nearing a return next week (after five weeks). Gordon simply missed three games.
