SJ - April 22, 2021

Wizards rookie Deni Avdija was wheeled off the floor on Wednesday night after an awkward landing caused an ankle injury.  The 20-year-old suffered a hairline ankle fracture and will miss the rest of the season as a result.

The injury took place after Avdija had a shot blocked.  He landed on a defender's foot causing his foot to slide.  His right foot then landed behind his body and he rolled up on his own ankle.

Nobody likes watching these injuries.  Although I have to admit I watched it several times before moving on.  It's like watching a car accident.
