Los Angeles Clippers big man DeAndre Jordan is good at dunking basketballs, and he reminded us of that Thursday night with an awesome putback jam against the Sacramento Kings.

Unfortunately, Jordan also rolled his ankle at the end of the play, and it didn’t look good. Hopefully it’s just your average ankle sprain, but Jordan was forced to miss the remainder of the game.

After losing Blake Griffin for much of the season, the Clippers can’t afford to lose Jordan for an extended period as well.

The Clippers won this game 121-115, and have finally started to play good basketball lately, with nine wins over their last 12 games. Los Angeles is 0.5 games behind the New Orleans Pelicans for the eighth seed in the West, but it would obviously be much more difficult for the Clippers if Jordan is forced to miss much time.

Jordan leads the NBA in rebounds per game with a ridiculous average of 15.1.
