Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes went down during the team’s matchup against the Knicks with an ankle injury on Thursday night.
He immediately left for the locker room after landing wrong on his left ankle on his way down from an offensive rebound attempt, after hopping to the baseline and sitting down to gather himself.
Baynes is a 6′ 10″, 254 lb center from Gisborne, New Zealand, who is averaging 5.8 points per game and 4.7 rebounds for the Celtics so far this season. He missed several games early on in the season and was eager to come back, so it’s likely he’ll try and get back on the floor as soon as possible.
