An MRI on Friday morning revealed a moderate right ankle sprain for Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic, sources told Mid American Herald.

There is no definitive timetable for Doncic’s absence, but he returned to practice 10 days after suffering a similar sprain to his right ankle earlier this season.

Doncic was injured during a brief scrimmage at the end of Thursday’s practice when he stepped on a teammate’s foot while driving to the basket.

He suffered the previous sprain when he stepped on the foot of Miami Heat guard Kendrick Nunn on a drive in the opening minutes of the Mavs’ Dec. 14 loss.

Doncic missed four games after the earlier sprain. He would miss six games with this sprain if his recovery takes as long.

Doncic, 20, who was voted to be an All-Star starter, is averaging 28.8 points, 9.5 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game. He also was selected Friday to participate in the Rising Stars game during All-Star Weekend.

The All-Star Game will tip off on Feb. 16, with the Rising Stars game taking place Feb. 14.
