Clippers' Jordan exits game with ankle sprain after vicious dunk vs. Kings


After finishing a vicious one-handed, alley-oop slam - sending Sacramento Kings big Skal Labissiere tumbling out of the way - Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan appeared to land awkwardly on his left ankle and crumpled to the floor himself.

After gathering himself, Jordan hobbled to the bench before leaving for the locker room and checking out of the game for good.

The Clippers have been plagued by injuries this season. They were already without Danilo Gallinari, Austin Rivers, and C.J. Williams for Thursday's game, and Patrick Beverley has been shut down for the rest of the season. Blake Griffin and Milos Teodosic had been banged up recently as well, but both were able to play Thursday.

Still, coach Doc Rivers' squad continues to battle back up the Western Conference standings, despite missing more than a few cards from their deck.
