Mavericks star Luka Doncic sprains right ankle in practice

Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic suffered a right ankle sprain in practice and will miss Friday’s contest against the Houston Rockets.

The first-time All-Star was inactive during a four-game stretch in December with a sprain to the same ankle, but it’s unknown how long he will be sidelined with his current injury.

Doncic, 20, is having one of the best seasons all-time for a player his age, firmly entrenching himself in the Kia MVP conversation with averages of 28.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 8.7 assists.

Dallas (29-18) will begin a back-to-back stretch in Houston on Friday before hosting the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.

The team enters the weekend fifth in the Western Conference.
