Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Nicolas Batum suffered an apparent right knee injury in the first quarter of Monday's Portland vs. Oklahoma City game.

The injury occurred with 1:36 left in the first quarter when Batum and Joel Freeland went up for a rebound. Batum landed awkwardly once Freeland claimed the board.

After an immediate Blazer turnover, Batum fouled Dion Waiters to stop a fast break. He then limped to the sideline.

Batum was ruled out of the rest of the game after X-Rays came up negative, according to Trail Blazers PR.

Update: Batum will have an MRI tomorrow.
