Aaron Gray Ankle Injury A Mild Sprain, According To Monty Williams

Aaron Gray’s scary ankle injury, suffered in the closing minutes of the New Orleans Hornets road upset against the Los Angeles Lakers, looks like it might not keep him out of game two. Hornets coach Monty Williams described the injury as a “mild ankle sprain,” adding that doctors will look at the ankle on Monday, and that Gray should hopefully be OK for game two.

The Hornets center sharply twisted his ankle with just a couple minutes to go in the Staples Center, falling to the ground as his teammates gathered around him. He was helped off the floor and into the locker room, having played a very effective game.

The series’ second game is scheduled for Wednesday night in Los Angeles. New Orleans will need Aaron Gray, which is not a sentence most NBA fans are all that used to reading.

Aaron Gray Injury: Hornets Center Injured Ankle In Los Angeles

Aaron Gray landed awkwardly on his right ankle late in the fourth quarter of the New Orleans Hornets' series opener against the Los Angeles Lakers. He remained on the floor for a moment as his teammates left the bench to gather around him in the paint before being helped to his feet and assisted into the team's locker room.

After the game, Chris Paul told ABC's broadcast team that Gray had been the player of the game. Paul's got a point, if he's not allowed to pick himself, of course. Gray and Jarrett Jack both played very good games -- the center contributed 12 points and held Andrew Bynum to 13, with New Orleans posting a +25 scoring margin when Gray was on the floor. 

New Orleans will need to hope Gray can return quickly, with game two in Los Angeles set for Wednesday, April 20.
