Spurs Young Star Leaves Game in Extreme Pain With Apparent Knee Injury
The San Antonio Spurs rely on their deep bench year in and year out, but may have lost a key component tonight.
Based on his immediate reaction, at least.
Fourth-year guard/small-forward Kyle Anderson left Sunday night’s game against the Thunder with an apparent knee injury. Anderson had to be helped off the court after going down with an injury.

For those who didn’t see, here’s another look Anderson’s injury. You could see his knee twist after he went down and it looked just as bad as it sounded.
Anderson was in visible pain immediately after going down.

Anderson is one of the most versatile players in the league and plays just about every position for the Spurs. All the team was willing to announce is that the knee’s sprained.
Anderson was off to a career year-type start, averaging nine points, three assists and five rebounds per game on the season. The Spurs will look to compensate for his unfortunate departure.
