Los Angeles Clippers rookie Keon Johnson reportedly suffered a sprained ankle on Thursday with the Agua Caliente Clippers in the NBA G League, according to Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times.

Johnson appeared to suffer the injury after landing on the foot of a defender. He jumped up to contest a shot by Kevin Murphy of the G League Ignite but came down awkwardly and initially did not get up. He was eventually helped off the court and would not return.

The 21st overall pick had put forth a strong performance with the Clippers, tallying 12 points on 6-of-6 shooting prior to the injury. The effort followed a 24-point performance against the Ignite on Wednesday.

Johnson was with Agua Caliente after logging just one appearance with Los Angeles. The team will certainly be cautious and not rush him back into action too quickly if the injury is serious.

The Clippers will be hoping that isn’t the case after a strong debut by Johnson.
