Kristaps Porzingis will miss the Dallas Mavericks game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night due to an ankle sprain.

Rick Carlisle believes that the sprain is "not serious."

“We believe [the ankle sprain] is not serious, but the decision for him to sit tonight was not a close call," said Carlisle before the game. 

Porzingis suffered the injury on Thursday night against the Lakers.
