Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Evan Mobley on Monday was ruled out of returning versus the Orlando Magic due to a sprained left ankle, the team announced. Mobley suffered the injury midway through the second quarter. His left ankle appeared to land on the foot of Magic rookie Franz Wagner after attempting to contest his shot. He looked to be in immediate pain and eventually hobbled off the court.

A source who spent time with #Cavs Evan Mobley after the game told @clevelanddotcom they had no initial feel for the severity of Mobley’s sprained left ankle. Mobley did tell the source it was “sore” after the game. The Cavs are “gutted” by this one.

MASSIVE lift from #Cavs Kevin Love off the bench tonight. He has 14 points in 17 minutes. Cavs lead Magic 60-53 at the half. But all eyes on Evan Mobley after that ugly-looking ankle roll when he landed on Franz Wagner’s foot trying to contest a shot. – 8:05 PM

More on this storyline

X-rays on Mobley’s ankle were negative, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. -via ESPN / March 29, 2022

Another source who interacted with Mobley said there was no initial read on the severity and that the 20-year-old big man simply said the ankle was “sore” — an expected result given such a nasty-looking roll. -via Cleveland Plain Dealer / March 29, 2022

“I think he rolled it pretty good,” Kevin Love said. “Hopefully, he will be back sooner rather than later. It definitely gutted us to lose Evan, whether it be for a game, two games, three games. We just need to keep fighting and hope that he recovers quickly and can be back out there with us because he means so much to the team.” -via The Rookie Wire / March 29, 2022
