Washington Wizards guard Russell Westbrook suffered a right ankle injury and left the floor limping in the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s playoff game at Philadelphia.

Westbrook stepped on 76ers guard Furkan Korkmaz‘s foot and rolled the ankle with 10:28 remaining and the Wizards down 17 points in Game 2 of the teams’ first round-playoff series.

As he was leaving the floor to go to the locker room for treatment, a fan appeared to pour popcorn on Westbrook’s head as he went down the tunnel. It angered Westbrook, who had to be held back by multiple team officials and security staff.

A fan seated near the tunnel was escorted out by security shortly after the incident.

A few moments earlier, Westbrook briefly left the floor to work on a different right leg injury after he fell while guarding Ben Simmons on a post play late in the third quarter.

Westbrook struggled on the night, going 2-of-10 shooting with 10 points plus 11 assists and six rebounds.
