Al Jefferson Sprained His Right Ankle

Hopefully this isn’t too serious, as Al Jefferson is expected to carry a pretty heavy load in Charlotte this season. Per the Charlotte Observer: “One day after losing reserve center Brendan Haywood for 12 weeks to a stress fracture, the Charlotte Bobcats have suffered an injury to another center. Free agent center Al Jefferson suffered a sprained right ankle in the third quarter of Friday night’s 86-75 loss to the Miami Heat and had to be helped off the court. A team spokesman said Jefferson will be reevaluated Saturday in Milwaukee, where the Bobcats will play another preseason game against the Bucks.”
