Knicks' Randle leaves vs. Heat with ankle injury
NEW YORK (AP) — Julius Randle, who has played in all 77 games for the New York Knicks this season, missed the second half against Miami on Wednesday night with a sprained left ankle.
Randle was hurt in the second quarter when he grabbed an offensive rebound and Heat center Bam Adebayo landed on him after Randle faked a shot. The All-Star forward was eventually helped up and stayed in the game to shoot his free throws, but was clearly in pain and the Knicks then quickly committed a foul to substitute him out of the game.
The Knicks announced at halftime Randle would not return.
He was having a quiet game with just three points and five rebounds, but leads the Knicks with 25.4 points and 10 rebounds per game.
