Near the conclusion of the Bobcats’ 110-88 blowout loss to the Denver Nuggets, Charlotte big man Byron Mullens got his feet tangled with other players’ and took a hard fall. An X-ray to detect a fracture was negative, but Mullens appears to have a severe sprain of his left ankle. “From my eyes it’s not good,” said Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap. Mullens wasn’t available for comment following the game, but he had to be carried off the court by teammates, seemingly in heavy pain. He returned to the locker room, following the X-ray, on crutches, his ankle wrapped so heavily he could have been a mummy. Mullens has started 25 of the Bobcats’ 26 games this season. He is their leading rebounder at 7.6 per game on a team with severe rebounding concerns. And he’s fifth in scoring at 11.5 per gamevia. via Charlotte Observer

Watch as Kidd-Gilchrist drives the lane and hammers down a one-handed dunk with authority at the expense of Koufos' pride.Koufos would redeem himself, however, as the Nuggets went on to roll 110-88 thanks in large part to a season-high 16 points from the 23-year old.
