Kristaps Porzingis of New York Knicks leaves game with injury

New York Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis left Wednesday’s game against the Miami Heat three minutes into the first quarter with a right ankle sprain.

Porzingis and Justise Winslow were both pursuing a loose ball on the baseline and Winslow stepped on Porzingis’ right foot. Porzingis’ foot turned and he appeared to roll his ankle. He stayed on the floor for several minutes, walking to the locker room supported by a teammate and a team staffer.

X-rays taken were negative, and the Knicks announced that he is available to return.

Any missed time for Porzingis would be a significant loss for the Knicks. Porzingis entered play Wednesday ranked fourth in the NBA in scoring (27.0 points per game) and leading the league in blocks per game (2.2).
