Video: Toronto Raptors Rookie Suffers Scary Injury in Game 1

Toronto Raptors rookie Scottie Barnes left Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers after suffering an ankle injury in the fourth quarter. Barnes did not return to the game and his status for Game 2 remains up in the air.

Barnes went down after 76ers big man Joel Embiid stepped on his foot, causing Barnes to twist up and roll his ankle. The play looked unintentionally and no fault can be pointed in the direction of Embiid for what transpired. Barnes was helped off to the locker room after he was down for several minutes in a heap of pain.

The Raptors announced the x-ray was negative and the ROY candidate is set for an MRI on Sunday. Toronto is hopeful the 20-year-old will be able to suit up again in the series, however to this point the picture is clear as mud. Barnes was a beast in his first ever postseason action collecting 15 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and a block in 32 minutes. 

Barnes joined Raptors veteran Thaddeus Young on the team's injured list as Young went down with a thumb sprain in the first half. Game 2 goes Monday night in Philly.
