Lonzo Ball tweaked his left ankle Monday night, leaving the Los Angeles Lakers’ preseason loss to the Denver Nuggets early.

The team called it a mild sprain, according to Tania Ganguli of The Los Angeles Times. Ball initially hurt the ankle just before halftime and left the game, but returned in the second half. He was then taken out of the contest for good with the Lakers trailing big in the fourth quarter.
