Ionescu badly rolled her ankle during the second quarter of Liberty’s game against the Atlanta Dream. The 2020 WNBA top pick had to be helped off the floor.

The extent of the injury is still unknown, but there is certainly a reason to be concerned just by looking at the video of the incident. The timing couldn’t be more worse as well, especially since Sabrina is starting to find her rhythm in the WNBA.
In the Liberty’s second game against the Dallas Wings on Wednesday, Ionescu exploded for 33 points, seven rebounds and seven assists — albeit in a losing effort.
As for Lebron, the Lakers star obviously has a close relationship with Ionescu, who has been labeled as the future of the WNBA. In fact, according to Sabrina herself, she got a call from LBJ, Stephen Curry and more NBA players following her first game.
Hopefully, Ionescu’s injury is not that serious and she would be able to return soon.
Meanwhile, LeBron James and the Lakers will look to continue their domination in the West in the NBA restart. After beating the Los Angeles Clippers in their opener, they are just one win away to completely securing the top seed in the conference.
