Angel Reese limps to sidelines after a painful ankle injury against Auburn

During the game against Auburn, Angel Reese got injured in the fourth quarter. LSU fans watched their best player need assistance to reach the stationary bike.

None of LSU’s starters returned to the game, as LSU won by 30 points. However, Angel Reese, worth $1.7 million (according to On3), stayed on the bench to cheer on her teammates until the game ended.

It occurred in the final 6:40 minutes of the fourth quarter, when Auburn trailed LSU by 37-71. It appeared that she mistakenly stepped on an Auburn player’s foot, leading her to favor her left foot and put less pressure on her right.

Following her exit from the game and her automatic berth in the tournament semifinal, Reese appeared unconcerned about her injury in a postgame interview with Brooke Weisbrod of SEC Network.
