Report: Luka Doncic leaves game vs. the Miami Heat with apparent right ankle sprain

Just a minute into the game against the Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks' 20-year-old superstar hobbled off the floor after injuring his right ankle.

He left straight for the locker room without putting any pressure on his right foot.

Minutes later, the Mavericks PR announced that he would be questionable to return.

The latest on Doncic is that he will not return to the game with what is reported to be a right ankle sprain.

Coming off a 40-point triple-double in Mexico City, the second of his career, Doncic has been on a tear lately. He has recorded at least 20 points, five rebounds, and five assists in 20 consecutive games, the third-longest such streak in NBA history.

His national team's backcourt mate Goran Dragic was quick to send his prayers.
