Indiana Pacers fans have been holding their collective breath for the last 20 minutes or so after Myles Turner suffered an injury in Brooklyn.

Turner had to be helped off the court at the Barclays Center after injuring his right leg. He appeared to be in considerable discomfort.

Prior to getting hurt, Turner had scored seven points and grabbed two rebounds against the Nets.

Even though this wasn't a non-contact injury, there is still major concern whenever a big man goes down with a leg injury.

However, according to The Athletic's Scott Agness, Turner suffered a sprained right ankle, so the news could have been worse.

Turner came into tonight averaging 17.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.

We will keep you posted on his status whether he returns to the game or not.
