An MRI was scheduled for Sunday, team officials said.

Howard hurt his right ankle with 2:35 left in the Mavericks' 112-92 loss to the Grizzlies when he stepped on teammate Devin Harris' foot. He had to be helped off the floor.

The injury came as Howard was asserting himself as a strong frontcourt complement to star Dirk Nowitzki. Howard led the Mavericks with 25 points and 11 rebounds in a 103-90 victory at Miami on Friday, and he had 17 points to go with Nowitzki's 27 in the loss to Memphis, which snapped Dallas' seven-game winning streak.

After the Monday-Tuesday trip to Toronto and Milwaukee, the Mavericks play Thursday at home against San Antonio.
