Portland Trail Blazers rookie point guard Scoot Henderson sustained a right ankle sprain against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night, the team announced on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Henderson exited the game at the 5:35 mark in the third quarter and eventually headed to the locker room. He didn’t return to the game.
It’s not clear when the injury occurred yet, but Henderson did take a fall when he turned the ball over on a fast break with 6:24 left in the third quarter. Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports seems to think that’s where Henderson likely sprained his ankle.
