CHICAGO (AP) — Jordan Bell has left Golden State’s game against Chicago with a sprained left ankle.
Bell got hurt when he challenged Robin Lopez’s dunk on the Bulls’ first possession. Bell stayed down for a while and then was helped to his feet. He tried to put pressure on his leg and grimaced before he opted for a wheelchair ride off the court.
X-rays were negative, and the team announced Bell will have an MRI on Thursday (Friday, PHL time).
The NBA champion Warriors already were without Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala for Wednesday night’s (Thursday, PHL time) game. Green is dealing with right shoulder soreness, and Iguodala has a bruised left calf.
The 23-year-old Bell was selected by the Bulls in the second round of the June draft and then dealt to the Warriors for financial considerations. He made his first career start against Chicago on Nov. 24 (Nov. 25, PHL time) and blocked six shots in the Warriors’ 143-94 victory.
