Marcus Camby sprains right ankle vs. Nets
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)
Camby was hurt when Nets center Brook Lopez stepped on his ankle as both waited for a rebound a little more than 5 minutes after the opening tip.
X-rays were negative and coach Nate McMillan did not think the injury was serious.
``I contested a shot (by Devin Harris) and I think Lopez stepped on my ankle,'' Camby said. ``My momentum went the other way. It is pretty sore right now.''
``Hey, Camby, welcome to Portland,'' McMillan said referring to the Trail Blazers' injury-plagued season. ``It's amazing what our guys are going through. I think he's going to be OK.''
Brandon Roy could only shake his head after the game.
``Is our center spot cursed?'' he said.
