Austin Rivers screamed and grimaced in pain after suffering this ankle injury against the Heat Friday night. Rivers, the Hornets’ lottery pick expected to start at point guard this season, left the game and New Orleans fans hope the injury isn’t as bad as it looked.
“We’ll find out (Saturday), but when I see him go down like that you always think the worst, but he’s been able to come back from these kinds of injuries before,” Williams said. “He’s walking around in the locker room. He wanted to come back into the game, but you never want to see anybody in that position on the floor, and you don’t know if it’s a knee, a hip or ankle. I’m just glad he’s OK.”
It’s the 2nd time in five days he’s twisted an ankle.
Since you’re wondering, Anthony Davis, the No. 1 pick, scored 24 points and collected 11 rebounds in the game against Miami.
