Oklahoma City Thunder guard Hamidou Diallo avoided serious injury after going down with a freak injury on Wednesday night. He was against the Golden State Warriors.

He went down after being injured when he was landing as he attempted a rebound. He came down awkwardly on his leg.

After being injured, he was in serious pain. He even crawled around on the floor in pain, before medical professionals attended to him.

Diallo was stretched off the court.

He had been diagnosed with an ankle sprain. He is expected to be re-evaluated in the next seven-to-10 days.

He has undergone tests on Thursday that provided a definitive answer on what exactly happened to him.

Prior to his injury, he had three points, six rebounds, and two assists in 17 minutes.

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.

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.
