Kuzma leaves Wizards-Nets game with ankle injury originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Kyle Kuzma left the Wizards' Saturday night game against the Brooklyn Nets in the second quarter with a left ankle sprain, a rare injury for the 6-foot-10 forward.

Kuzma, 27, has only missed one of the Wizards' 52 games so far this season, as he leads the team in games played. He tweaked his ankle while driving through the lane against Brooklyn and quickly hobbled off the court to the locker room.

Kuzma has enjoyed a career year so far, averaging personal bests in points (21.6 ppg) and assists (4.0 apg), plus 7.7 rebounds per game. He has been a mainstay in the Wizards' starting lineup as the rest of the roster has been regularly affected by injuries.

The Wizards were already without Bradley Beal on Saturday against the Nets, as he sat out with left foot soreness. Beal sustained that injury the night before in the Wizards' loss to the Blazers.

The Wizards will be off on Sunday before returning home to host the Cavaliers on Monday.
