Thunder’s Steven Adams injured after dangerous foul by Clint Capela

Thunder, Steven Adams

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Steven Adams won’t return against the Houston Rockets due to a sprained ankle injury.

The veteran big man injured his left ankle on this hard foul by the Rockets’ Clint Capela. The injury occurred on an attempted rebound by Capela. Capela ended up falling on Adams with his full body weight, as you can see in the video below.


As Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle detailed, Adams was originally questionable to return. However, he’s now been ruled out.

Thunder Veteran Has Been Durable

The Thunder big man had already missed time earlier in the season due to a knee injury. However, he’s been durable ever since he was drafted in 2013. Adams has played in at least 70 games every season since his rookie campaign.

In his first season without Russell Westbrook, the big man is still averaging respectable numbers. The 6-foot-11 big is averaging 11.6 points and 9.9 rebounds per game this season.

We’ll keep you updated regarding the severity of Adams’ ankle injury as soon as more info becomes available.
