“Victor Wembanyama’s Injury Update: Spurs’ Star Rookie Sidelined with Right Ankle Sprain”

Victor Wembanyama, the young basketball player for the Spurs, is having an impressive first season in the NBA. However, despite his talent, the Spurs are not doing well in the rankings.

To add to their troubles, Wembanyama has suffered an ankle injury during a match against the Houston Rockets, which means he will not be playing for a while. Wembanyama has been playing in most of the games this season, averaging 20.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.3 steals and a league-leading 3.4 blocks in 28.8 minutes per game.

With the season coming to an end, the Spurs need all the help they can get from Wembanyama to try to win more games. The injury Wembanyama sustained was a sprain on his right ankle during Tuesday’s match. He left the game before halftime and returned in the second half after performing “lateral drills” to test it. Although he struggled during the game, he still managed to grab 11 rebounds and block seven shots.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first ankle injury Wembanyama has experienced this season. In December, he accidentally stepped on a ball boy’s foot, which forced him to sit out that night’s match. The Spurs were cautious with him and put him on a minutes restriction while he recovered from the injury.

ESPN’s Andrew Lopez reported that Wembanyama will not be playing in the Spurs’ match against the Kings in Sacramento on Thursday. Currently, there is no clear timeline of when he will return to the court. It is possible that he could be out for a few games and, when he returns, he may be on a restricted playing time.
