Original Post:

The Portland Trail Blazers report that starting center Marcus Camby says he is "doubtful" for Wednesday night's game against the Atlanta Hawks with his ankle sprain, although he did participate in Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Original Post: Portland Trail Blazers starting center Marcus Camby went down with an apparent left ankle injury at the 4:20 mark of the second quarter of a Friday night game against the San Antonio Spurs at the A T & T Center.

Camby was attempting a shot over Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard when his left ankle rolled over. He fell to the floor in evident pain as play continued the other way. Once timeout was called, he was helped off the court to the locker room by his teammates. Blazers Broadcasting later showed Camby being wheeled in a wheelchair.

Update (Monday): Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports that Portland Trail Blazers starting center Marcus Camby will miss Monday's game against the New Orleans Hornets. Kurt Thomas started in place of Camby on Saturday night against the Houston Rockets.

Update (6:54 p.m.): The Blazers have informed the media via text message that Camby suffered a left ankle sprain. He will not return tonight. X-rays taken at the arena "came up negative for fractures" and he is listed as "day-to-day." Portland next plays on Saturday night against the Rockets in Houston.

Jason Quick of The Oregonian reports that Camby is out for Saturday and "probably" out for a Monday night game against the New Orleans Hornets. Blazers coach Nate McMillan told reporters post-game that he will likely start forward Nicolas Batum against Houston, shifting Gerald Wallace to power forward and LaMarcus Aldridge to center.

San Antonio was leading, 44-41, at the time of the injury. Camby departed with 0 points, 3 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks in 13 first half minutes.

Here's video of the play.

Camby missed some time in March 2011 due to an ankle injury but it was his right ankle at that time.
