Atlanta Hawks guard Dennis Schroder has been ruled out for Wednesday’s game against the Chicago Bulls. The team has decided to rest him on the night, as he is continuing to recover from the ankle injury he suffered last Sunday, according to Michael Cunningham of The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The German international inadvertently stepped on the foot of Brooklyn Nets guard Caris LeVert late in the fourth quarter while driving to the basket. He laid on the floor grimacing in pain, and had to be helped out by his teammates to the locker room, as he couldn’t put any weight on it.

Tests were done immediately on Schroder to check for the extent of the injury. Fortunately for him and the Hawks, it did not reveal any structural damage, but the MRI confirmed he suffered an ankle sprain. He already missed their game on Monday against the Miami Heat, which they ultimately lost. The team is currently on a three-game losing skid, and his absence definitely does not help their cause.

Malcolm Delaney will most likely start in the 24-year-old’s place once again, with Kent Bazemore also seeing minutes at the point guard spot in some stretches of the game. Schroder’s earliest return could be on Friday, when they host the Denver Nuggets.
