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.

Henderson played 20 minutes in the game. He scored 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting, to go along with seven assists and three turnovers.

When Henderson exited, Portland trailed 75-62.
