Atlanta Hawks rookie guard Dennis Schröder left Tuesday's game against the Toronto Raptors in the fourth quarter after suffering what appeared to be an ankle injury.

Schröder was hurt while coming up with a steal in transition where he showed off his speed while running down the Toronto fast break.

From the broadcast it looked like Schröder had ice on his ankle during the game's final moments. His status was not updated after the game.

He's played in 13 of the 15 games since the All-Star break after appearing in just 23 games over the first half of the season. Schröder's shooting numbers have been on the climb since the break as well. His field goal percentage is up to 43 percent since the break and his three-point percentage has increased to 33 percent.

His assists have dropped slightly to 1.8 per game but so have his turnovers. During his first 23 games, Schröder was averaging 1.4 turnovers in just 13 minutes. Since the break he averaging 0.8 turnovers in right at 13 minutes.
