New Zealand NBA rookie Steven Adams sprained his right ankle in Oklahoma City Thunder's 116-100 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.

The centre landed awkwardly on a rebound attempt in the second half and was clearly in pain as play was stopped.

Adams had to be helped to the locker room and did not return to the game.

The Thunder confirmed a right ankle sprain but the recovery time is unknown.

Adams had scored three points to go with five rebounds and a steal in 16 minutes on court before the injury.

The win in Memphis lifted the Thunder to a 17-4 record.

They were led by point guard Russell Westbrook's 27 points and nine assists.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
