Domantas Sabonis suffered a left ankle sprain during the third quarter of Tuesday's contest against the Philadelphia 76ers, and didn't return. Indiana Pacers head coach Nate McMillan said afterward that X-rays were negative.

The big man lost his balance in the post and as he tried to regain it, Joel Embiid fell on his buttocks and directly on Sabonis' foot. The Lithuanian immediately fell over and slammed his arm in agony before being carried off the court by his teammates.

Another angle:

Embiid, who's listed at 7-feet and 260 pounds, was bumped by Trevor Booker and had plenty of momentum as he came crashing down on Sabonis' ankle.

Sabonis exited the contest with three points, two steals, and an assist in 11 minutes and his team up seven. The Pacers held on to win 101-98.
