Tayshaun Prince goes down with sprained ankle

File this one under "well that kind of sucks:"

Tayshaun Prince sprained his left ankle in the first quarter of the United States' game with Brazil on Sunday night in the FIBA Americas tournament.

The 6-foot-9 forward for the Detroit Pistons fell and stayed on the floor after going for a defensive rebound late in the first quarter. He was attended to for about a minute and then helped off the court. He gingerly walked to the locker room and a team spokesman said a decision on his returning to the game would be made at halftime.

I didn't see it happen, but some of your fellow readers did -- here's joejoejoe's reaction from the comments in the post below:

I was watching live when it happened. It looked bad enough that you went ‘I hope that’s not serious’. Here’s hoping it’s not serious.

I second that. Hopefully we'll get a more substantive update soon.
