Charlotte PG Ball sprains ankle again against Rockets

HOUSTON (AP) — Charlotte Hornets point guard LaMelo Ball has left their game against the Houston Rockets after spraining his left ankle again. Ball was injured when teammate P.J. Washington landed on him after jumping to try for a rebound with about nine minutes left in the third quarter. He appeared to be in a lot of pain and didn’t put any weight on his left leg as he was helped to the locker room. It’s the third time this season that Ball has injured the same ankle.
