DALLAS (AP) Luka Doncic was ruled out of a game against Miami after the young Dallas Mavericks star sprained his right ankle early in the first quarter.

The reigning rookie of the year's right foot landed on the foot of Heat guard Kendrick Nunn on a drive less than two minutes into the game Saturday night.

Doncic lost control of the ball for a turnover and limped off the court before going down behind the basket while play continued at the other end. He got up a short time later but went straight to the locker room. The team said X-rays were negative but he wouldn't return.
