Jae Crowder will get MRI on sprained ankle

While it probably isn't serious, it doesn't hurt to be sure.

Jae Crowder twisted his ankle in the Rockets game and was originally going to try to return to the game, but was eventually ruled out.  The Celtics don't seem to think this is a major injury, but they would rather be safe than sorry so he's getting an MRI.

"Jae sprained his ankle, twisted it in," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. "He doesn't have much swelling now, so it looks good. They're going to do an MRI on it and figure out if there's anything above what they think right now. But I got mostly positive vibes as I was talking to him and then also to our doctors and trainers that it won't be a long-term thing. But we'll see."

Hope he feels better soon but I'm also fine if he takes a few days off to get better the right way.  We need Jae for the playoffs.
