Charlotte Hornets rookie Brandon Miller was ruled out for the second half of Saturday night's 102-95 loss to the Denver Nuggets after spraining his right ankle.

Miller, the No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft, was injured when he drove the lane and Denver's Peyton Watson landed on his ankle as he came down. Miller hobbled to the locker room.

Initially the team said he would return but later updated the report, saying Miller was done for the night.

Miller is averaging 14.6 points and 4.0 rebounds per game for Charlotte, which has lost seven straight games. He had four points in 11 minutes against the Nuggets before the injury.

He is just the latest key player injured in Charlotte. The Hornets are already without starters LaMelo Ball (ankle), Terry Rozier (knee) and center Mark Williams (back).
