Shaq sprains ankle during Miami's loss to Indiana
O'Neal landed awkwardly while jostling for a rebound. X-rays were negative.
"He's probably going to miss some time, the way he was walking on it in there," Heat coach Stan Van Gundy said.
O'Neal came down on Ron Artest's foot. He remained down for a few seconds, then limped off the court and into the locker room. He finished with 18 points and six rebounds.
