MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Minnesota guard Mike Miller left the Timberwolves' game Saturday night against Houston in the first quarter because of a sprained right ankle.
Miller was hurt on a drive to the basket midway through the period. He crashed hard underneath the basket and immediately clutched his right leg. He was helped to the locker room by team officials.
Miller missed four games earlier this month with the same injury. The team listed his return as questionable.
Miller is third on the team in scoring with 11 points per game and also is averaging six rebounds.
