Jefferson Sprains Ankle

October 5, 2005
WALTHAM The first day of training camp also included the first injury of the season. Al Jefferson went down with a sprained left ankle near the end of the second session. The power forward had just run down the court and was preparing to pivot in the low post when he twisted the ankle. Although he did not collapse in pain, the second-year forward knew right away what had happened. He iced down the ankle immediately and will be evaluated today.

Last season, Jefferson sprained his right ankle in late January and missed almost three weeks of the season. Though this sprain does not seem nearly as severe, the Celtics will wait till the swelling goes down before setting any timetable for Jefferson's return.
