The Oklahoma City Thunder guard Hamidou Diallo was injured on Wednesday night against the Golden State Warriors. He suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of the team’s 123-95 win.

As he was attempting to get a rebound, he came down awkwardly on his left leg. He was in pain immediately.

His leg was trapped underneath him, according to the broadcasters. He crawled around on the court in extreme pain.

Diallo was credited with a rebound on the play, as he battled Jonas Jerebko after he missed the layup.

He would eventually be stretched off the court. Prior to his injury, he had three points, six rebounds, and two assists in 17 minutes.

At this time, it is not known the severity of his injury. Or how long he would potentially miss with his injury. 

He was originally drafted by the Brooklyn Nets with the 45th overall pick. Then, he was traded by the Nets, along with Timofey Mozgov, cash, and a 2021 second-round draft pick, to the Charlotte Hornets for Dwight Howard.

Then, he was swapped from the Hornets to the Thunder for cash and a 2019 second-round draft pick.

Diallo is the latest Thunder player to be on their injury report. Alex Abrines went on the injury report on Tuesday and is listed as day-to-day with an illness. He did not play against the Warriors.

Andre Roberson is also sidelined with a knee injury. He is not expected to return until at least December.

He was averaging 6.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 14.4 minutes per game in 15 games. He also had two starts prior to Wednesday’s game.
