Early in the fourth quarter of the Thunder’s blowout win in Memphis, rookie center Steven Adams came down awkwardly during a rebound attempt, twisting his right ankle. Adams tried to stand up, but couldn’t put weight on it. Moments later, he was helped to the locker room, where the team determined he had a right ankle sprain. In the postgame locker room, Adams had a slight limp, but no walking boot or crutches were needed, a good sign for the Thunder.
