NEW YORK -- Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo appeared to sustain a left ankle injury early in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's game against the New York Knicks.

Rondo's ankle bent awkward as he tried to drive the lane and he crumpled to the floor. After trying to stretch out the ankle, he gingerly got up and was aided off the court by teammates and returned to the locker room with team trainer Ed Lacerte in tow.

Rondo had 8 points on 4-of-8 shooting with 11 assists, three rebounds, and five turnovers in 26 minutes before the injury.

(Update: Rondo returned to the court with 8:35 to play in the fourth quarter. The injury evidently looked worse than it was).
