Marcus Camby: Sprained Right Ankle, Will Not Play in Toronto

Update (Wednesday, 9:06AM): The Blazers have announced that Marcus Camby is out for tonight's game in Toronto.

Original Post (Tuesday, 6:57PM):

Blazers Center Marcus Camby sprained his right ankle during the first quarter of tonight's game against the New Jersey Nets. The team initially listed him as questionable to return and he did not play in the second half.  Camby left the floor for the locker room and underwent X-Rays, which were negative.

Blazers Broadcaster Mike Barrett said after the game, "We don't know what his availability will be for tomorrow night."  The Blazers play in Toronto Wednesday night.

Update (7:09PM):

Nate McMillan's post-game comments regarding Camby's ankle...

Hey, Camby, welcome to Portland. It's just amazing what our guys are going through. We think he's going to be ok. Not a real serious sprain, not a lot of swelling. So we're hopeful for tomorrow night.

Nate also noted that Jerryd Bayless "tweaked" his ankle while shooting a corner 3 pointer.

Bayless steps on a fan's foot. Tweaked his [ankle]. He should be ok too. But that's just part of being a Blazer this season.

Further updates when they become available.
