LeBron James goes down with left ankle injury

New, comments

He's staying in the game, but he looks to be in a lot of pain.

The Cleveland Cavaliers already lost Kevin Love to injury and are playing a hobbled Kyrie Irving. Now, they'll have to push forward with LeBron James also hurt after he turned his left ankle on a fast break. He will stay in the game, but it's unclear how effective he'll be.

James was going hard on a fast break and stepped on Derrick Rose's foot while trying to make a move. He stayed on the ground for several minutes before walking gingerly to the bench under his own power.

We'll keep you posted as we learn more.
