In the first half, Danny Granger came down on LeBron James and injured his ankle. He wound up scoring zero points in the second quarter after putting up a team high nine in the first.
Granger presumably received treatment at the half and returned in the third. He drew a foul on the Pacers’ first possession and hit one of two free throws, but on the Pacers next trip down the floor, he ran into James again and came up hobbling on that bad ankle.
“Indiana Pacers Danny Granger came down on LeBron’s sneaker just before halftime and suffered a sprained left ankle that soon took him out of the game, it was an accident.”
Ankle sprains are common sports injuries but also happen during everyday activities. An unnatural twisting motion of the ankle joint can happen when the foot is planted awkwardly, when the ground is uneven, or when an unusual amount of force is applied to the joint. Ankle sprain will result when the ligaments of the ankle have been stretched beyond their limits or excessive force has been applied to the tendons and bones of the ankle. If you have suffered a sprained ankle, immediately call your Houston podiatrist and schedule an appointment. X-rays and/or MRI’s need to be done in order to make sure that there are no fractured bones or other more serious damages done to ligaments or tendons to the ankle.
