Derrick Rose sprained his ankle throughout the Minnesota Timberwolves‘ 123-120 overtime loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night, the team said.

He will be re-evaluated by medical staff Saturday.

Rose, who played 39 minutes, suffered the accident on an attempted jump shot throughout the very last play of law.

Rose, that started for wounded guard Jeff Teague, ended with 25 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists. Rose was an integral part of the Timberwolves’ crime this year.

In past seasons, Rose has fought to remain healthy, getting three knee surgeries throughout his livelihood. Last season, being part of the Cleveland Cavaliershe spent time away from the team to re-evaluate whether he needed to continue playing at the NBA following a sprained left ankle caused him to miss seven matches.

Rose also overlooked one game earlier this year due to left ankle soreness.
