Draymond Green left Saturday’s game between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets after spraining his ankle.

In the fourth quarter of the game, Green stepped on the foot of teammate DeMarcus Cousins. Immediately after doing so, the former Defensive Player of the Year fell to the ground in pain and grabbed his foot. After being helped to his feet, he limped to the locker room.

The team quickly announced that it was an ankle sprain.

The injury is more than a little concerning, because Green didn’t appear to roll his ankle at all. The injury occurred through impact, rather than twisting. Add that to the fact that he appeared to be in a huge amount of pain, and the whole thing feels rather concerning.

If you want to see the injury - there isn’t much to see beyond the reaction - here’s the video.

We’ll keep you updated on the injury if any more news comes out. Here’s hoping it’s nothing serious.
