Portland Trail Blazers center Hassan Whiteside exited Wednesday’s game against the Utah Jazz with a left ankle sprain. Whiteside went up for a rebound in the third quarter and landed on Damian Lillard’s foot. He walked back to the locker room under his own power:

This is the same ankle that Whiteside “tweaked” on the second day of training camp. He recently said that he was pain free after that injury.

Update:

Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers relays that the injury is a re-roll of his previously injured ankle and does not appear to be overly serious.
