PHILADELPHIA -- Dallas center Tyson Chandler left late in the first half of the Mavericks' 101-93 win against the 76ers on Tuesday night with a sprained right ankle.

Chandler grabbed his right ankle after he collapsed to the court trying to block a shot. He briefly stood and grabbed his knee before going back down. Chandler limped off the court and headed straight to the locker room.

Dallas coach Rick Carlisle had no update on Chandler's injury following the game.

After the win, Chandler tweeted: "Thank you everyone for the Get Wells I'm ok just a sprain."

He is averaging 10.5 points and 9.5 rebounds this season.
