Detroit Pistons’ Brandon Knight Suffered Ankle Sprain Monday During Game
Brandon Knight, guard for the Detroit Pistons, seriously injured his ankle Monday during a game against the Utah Jazz.
The injury occurred during the first quarter and Knight was forced to sit out for the rest of game. The good news is that Knight has had x-rays and ruled out an ankle fracture. However, the ankle is sprained and the timeline for Knight returning to the court is still uncertain.
Ankle sprains can still be severe and can require a lot of down time for healing and recovery. The severity of ankle sprain depends on whether the ligament is stretched, partially torn, or completely torn, as well as the number of ligaments involved.
Ankle sprains are a common sports injury. Other common causes include wearing inappropriate shoes, walking or running on uneven surfaces, or weak ankles, a condition that some people are born with.
Previous foot and ankle sprains or injuries can weaken the ankles and lead to sprains as well.
If you suffer an ankle sprain while playing sports, you shouldn’t try to play through the pain. Stop playing and start using the R.I.C.E. method (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.)
