Shooting guard RJ Barrett of the New York Knicks left Thursday night’s game against the Phoenix Suns with what the team said was a sprained right ankle. He will not return.
Barrett limped off the court and went directly to the locker room for evaluation in the middle of the third quarter after he appeared to turn his ankle.
The rookie had seven points and two assists before exiting. Barrett is averaging 14.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.
