The Charlotte Bobcats added Al Jefferson in the off-season.

Now, their biggest addition in the off-season had to leave Friday night’s preseason game against the Miami Heat. It is believed that he suffered a sprained right ankle.

He will be further evaluated on Saturday to determine the severity of his injury. The fact that it is an ankle injury and not a serious knee injury means that Jefferson will not miss the rest of the season.

This story is still developing, so more updates will be coming in. Earlier this week, he suffered a sore hamstring on Monday.

Cody Zeller and Josh McRoberts will receive extra playing time until Big Al is able to return. Jefferson has averaged more than 50 games a career in nearly a decade long career, including stops with the Boston Celtics, Minnesota Timberwolves, and the Utah Jazz, before signing with the Bobcats.

His career best scoring average is 23.1, but has averaged 16 or more points per game since the 2006-07 season until now.
