The Orlando Magics’ Andrew Nicholson Suffers Ankle Sprain
Andrew Nicholson, forward for the Orlando Magic, sprained his left ankle during Monday’s game against the Miami Heat.
The injury occurred during the first half of the game and Nicholson did not return for the second half. Apparently, Nicholson is now day-to-day with the sprained ankle, so it is uncertain when he will return to the court.
Ankle sprains should always receive prompt treatment for four reasons:
- An untreated ankle sprain can lead to chronic ankle instability.
- The injury may not be a sprain, but something more serious, like a fracture. It can be difficult to tell the difference between a sprain and a fracture without an x-ray.
- An ankle sprain may be accompanied by a foot injury that causes discomfort but has gone unnoticed thus far.
- Rehabilitation needs to begin right away. If rehabilitation is delayed, the injury may be less likely to heal properly.
If you have an ankle sprain, you should seek medical attention. Until you can see a doctor, follow the RICE method (rest, ice, compression, elevation.)
