University of Louisville’s Chane Behanan Will Miss Out On Today’s Game Due To Ankle Sprain

Chane Behanan, starting forward for the University of Louisville, sprained his left ankle during Monday’s practice and will be out play for probably the next 7 to 10 days.

That means Behanan will be missing out on today’s game at Seton Hall as well as possibly missing out on several upcoming games.

Freshman Motrezl Harrell will replace Behanan while he is out.

Ankle sprains are a common sports injury and are especially common in sports like basketball, soccer, football, and baseball.

You can help to avoid ankle sprains while playing sports by always stretching properly, always playing and practicing on appropriate surfaces, and always wearing the appropriate footwear.

If you do suffer an ankle sprain while playing sports, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. It is important to have ankle sprain evaluated and treated promptly and appropriately. What you think is only an ankle sprain could actually be something worse, like a fracture. Even it is only a sprain, it is important to have it treated because untreated ankle sprains can lead to chronic ankle instability.

Until you can have the ankle injury evaluated by a doctor, you should follow the “R.I.C.E.” method. The “R.I.C.E.” method includes rest, ice, compression, and elevation.

If you are suffering from a sprain, be sure to give it plenty of time to heal. Do not return to activity too soon. Behanan is doing the right thing by missing out on a few games and giving his ankle time to rehabilitate.

If you are suffering from an ankle sprain or other sports injury and would like to set up an appointment with our office, you can contact us at 615-220-8788 or at our toll-free number 888-713-0906. You can also request an appointment online.
