Ilgauskas Sprains Ankle

Cavaliers center Zydrunas Ilgauskas sprained his left ankle early in the first quarter against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.

X-rays taken in the team’s training room were negative, but the veteran center did not return to play.

Ilgauskas became tangled with 76ers center Samuel Dalembert about 10 feet from the basket and landed awkwardly on his left foot with 9:34 to play in the first quarter. Ilgauskas, who has had a history of foot problems throughout his career, fell hard to the court and rolled around in pain.

After a few moments, the-7-foot-3 center got up and walked on his own to the locker room for examination.
