Jordan Bell’s first start of the month started in the cruelest way possible. On the very first possession of the Bulls-Warriors game tonight, Robin Lopez got up a full head of steam, forcing Bell to help over from the corner a bit late. Not only did Bell not quite reach Lopez, he injured himself on the landing.
Bell landed awkwardly on his left leg, and he seemed to be in some real pain after the dunk.
Update (8:47 p.m. ET): Bell’s X-rays are negative, and the Warriors are saying he has a sprained left ankle. He’s out for the game.
