The Golden State Warriors just got some rough news. Rookie big man Jordan Bell left Tuesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets after injuring his right ankle.

Bell was playing in only his fourth game since injuring the same ankle in January. He had missed 14 games, plus the All-Star break after hurting the ankle attempting to block a shot.
Against the Nets, Bell was again trying to block a shot, when he landed awkwardly. He stayed on the ground in pain for quite a while, before getting up. Unlike last time, he was able to leave the court on his own power, but he was limping very heavily, and went straight to the locker room.
The team quickly confirmed that it was an ankle injury, and that Bell would not be returning to the game.
