Ball sprained his left ankle after colling with the Rockets' James Ennis in the third quarter.
Los Angeles Lakers star Lonzo Ball left Saturday night's game against the Houston Rockets with a sprained left ankle.
Ball suffered the ankle injury after colliding with Rockets forward James Ennis III with 8:39 remaining in the third quarter. The point guard fell to the floor in pain and immediately grabbed his ankle. Ball was eventually carried off of the court to the locker room.
The Lakers announced that Ball was going to be taken to a hospital for X-rays because the machine at the Toyota Center was not working. Later, the team shared that his X-rays came back negative for fractures.
Before exiting the game, Ball recorded eight points and 11 assists, with seven of those coming in the first quarter.
