Atlanta Hawks star point guard Trae Young exited Wednesday's 137-127 overtime loss at the New York Knicks early with a left ankle sprain and did not return.

X-rays were negative, and Young will get an MRI on Thursday, Atlanta coach Nate McMillan said.

Young had 20 points and 14 assists for the Hawks, but he left with 1:13 remaining in the third quarter because of the injury.

He tweeted after the game: "God had my back with this one..Be back soon."
