Portland Trail Blazers center Marcus Camby suffered an apparent right ankle injury during the second quarter of Saturday night's game against the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center.
With the Mavericks leading 35-25, Camby stepped in to take a charge from Mavericks forward Lamar Odom at the 5:43 mark of the second quarter, and Odom appeared to fall on Camby's ankle while falling to the ground. Immediately after the collision, Camby grabbed at his right ankle in evident pain. He was helped to the sideline by his teammates and departed for the locker room with Blazers trainer Jay Jensen.
Camby left the court with 2 points and 5 rebounds in 10 minutes of play at the time of the injury.
Update: At halftime, the Blazers informed the media that Camby suffered a "right ankle bruise" and that he was "questionable" to return. X-rays were negative.
Update: Camby started the second half. False alarm.
Camby missed three games in January after spraining his left ankle.
Here's video of Camby's apparent right ankle injury.
Updates as soon as they become available.
