INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A sprained ankle may keep Indiana's Austin Croshere sidelined for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against Philadelphia.

Croshere sprained his right ankle late in Game 2 on Monday, according to a report in The Indianapolis Star. He left the game briefly and returned for the final seconds.

Croshere scored 20 points, including 16 in the first half, as the Pacers beat the 76ers 103-97. The Pacers are 2-0 heading into tonight's game in the best-of-seven series.

Croshere wasn't able to do much during Tuesday's workout.

"If there was a game [Tuesday night], I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to play," he said.

This isn't the first time Croshere has experienced pain in his right foot.

Near the end of the regular season, Croshere developed plantar fasciaitis, an inflammation and strained tendon in the sole of the foot, which he aggravated in the Milwaukee series.

To deal with that pain, Croshere wears a plastic boot while he sleeps that keeps his foot at a 90-degree angle. He also endures treatment to stretch the tendon.
