Alperin Singon left the Rockets' match against the Kings in a wheelchair, but he avoided any serious injury, according to the tests he underwent.

The photo of Alperin Singun leaving the Rockets' game with the Kings in Sacramento in a wheelchair caused great concern not only among team members from Houston, but also among all basketball fans. The Turkish center conducted all the necessary tests, which showed that, fortunately, any serious damage had been avoided.

In fact, Singun suffered a severe sprain to his right ankle and a bruise to his kneecap, according to Adrian Wojniarowski.

This season, the 21-year-old Rockets point guard is on an impressive showing, averaging 21.1 points, 9.3 rebounds, 5 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.6 turnovers in 63 NBA games, all of them starting as a starter. .

At the moment, it is not clear how long Singun will remain on the pitch. However, his absence will certainly be felt for Emi Udoka's side.
