Chicago Bulls power forward Taj Gibson sprained his left ankle in the third quarter of Friday night’s 105-87 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers and did not return.

The injury took place midway through the third, and Gibson fell to the floor writhing in pain. Moments after Gibson went down, the entire Bulls bench went out to check on the veteran forward. He was carried off the floor by teammates Nikola Mirotic and Nazr Mohammed and was barely putting any weight on the foot or ankle.

After the game, Gibson said X-rays taken on the ankle were negative. He came back into the Bulls’ locker room on crutches and in a walking boot.
