Not even a full day after shining in the final minutes of the McDonald’s All-American Game, UK signee Keldon Johnson flew to New York to join his Oak Hill squad for the GEICO Nationals. Oak Hill is one of the favorites to win high school basketball’s national championship, but those championship hopes took a small hit when Johnson suffered an injury in Thursday’s quarterfinal game.
Seen below in a video from Shaun Smith over at Go Big Blue Country, Johnson appears to roll his left ankle when he comes down on an opposing player’s foot. Johnson hobbled off the court on his own accord, but was taken to the locker room for further evaluation.

Obviously we hope the injury is not a severe one, for the sake of Oak Hill’s title hopes and Johnson’s long term future.
We’ll update when updated.
