Clippers Guard Milos Teodosic Exits Hornets Game Early With Apparent Right Ankle Injury

Fortunately, it did not appear to be serious.

NBA: Charlotte Hornets at Los Angeles Clippers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Clippers guard Milos Teodosic exited the team’s game against the Charlotte Hornets early on Sunday with an apparent right ankle injury. Teodosic fell on a defensive possession with about 3 minutes remaining in the game and appeared to come up limping. Shortly thereafter, Doc Rivers subbed in Wesley Johnson to replace him and Teodosic was tended to by Clippers head athletic trainer Jasen Powell on the bench. The injury did not appear to be serious.

The Clippers went on to win 106-98, and Teodosic did not return in the closing minutes.

After the game, Doc Rivers said that he did not have any information on Milos’ injury yet, but that it appeared to be separate from a previous plantar fascia injury which forced the rookie guard out of the lineup for over a month earlier in the season. Rivers said that it looked like a routine rolled ankle.
