Hawks guard Dennis Schroder left Sunday’s game against the Nets with an apparent ankle injury. Late in the fourth quarter, Schroder drove for a layup. When Schroder went to jump for the attempt, his left foot planted on Nets guard Caris Levert’s foot, and he appeared to roll his ankle.
Schroder immediately left the game and needed assistance as he was taken to the locker room. He was unable to put any weight on his left leg as he was helped off.
This is unfortunate as he lead the team in points and assists. With this being such a young and inexperienced team, this will hurt them. As a Hawks fan, I was expecting us to be one of the worse teams in the league and if we’re without Schroder for an extended period of time, it’ll make for a long season.
