Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander departed Friday night's game against the Indiana Pacers with a sprained right ankle.

Gilgeous-Alexander turned the ankle while driving to the basket with 10:11 left in the third quarter. He was fouled on the play and remained in the game to shoot two free throws -- he missed both -- before hobbling off the court and heading to the locker room.

The Thunder ruled Gilgeous-Alexander out early in the fourth quarter. He scored 10 points in 17 minutes before exiting.

Gilgeous-Alexander entered the contest with a team-best 23.0 scoring average in 42 games.
