Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook left Monday night’s matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans in the third quarter after landing awkwardly on his left ankle.

After OKC’s win, the team announced that Westbrook suffered a left ankle sprain, but it was quickly reported that Westbrook’s x-rays came back negative. Head coach Billy Donovan said the severity of the sprain was unknown, but the Thunder will have more knowledge on the injury come Tuesday.

Oklahoma City returns to action on Wednesday night as they travel to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers.
