Juancho Hernangomez (ankle) limped off the floor in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s game against the Jazz and did not return.
Hernangomez had a nice night with nine points on 2-of-5 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds, three steals and two blocks. The only blemish was the 4-of-8 mark from the foul line and now the injury. We’ll pass along more info as we get it and until we hear for sure that Danilo Gallinari’s thigh injury is serious, this looks like a one-time burst for Juancho.
Update: X-rays were taken but he says he was okay, so presumably that means they’re negative. He probably really likes playing so he might be a bit optimistic, and we’ll see how the reporting goes before weighing in on his day-to-day fantasy value.
No additional word on Juancho Hernangomez (ankle). He did have an x-ray taken. Back in the locker room he told teammates he was "fine."
