Thaddeus Young leaves game with hamstring injury (VIDEO)

Feb 4, 2013, 9:27 PM EDT

Monday night was an easy win for the Sixers — they raced out to a 22-6 lead and really the rest of the game was pretty sloppy and ugly — but it came with a price for Philly:

They lost Thaddeus Young to a hamstring injury.

You can see what happened in the video above — Young was battling with Gustavo Ayon for a loose ball and tweaked it in the process, then just for dramatic effect went down right in front of the Sixers bench. He did not return to the game and seemed to have a pretty bad limp but we have no further information. Hamstrings are notoriously tricky injuries, ones that can take a long time to heal properly.

Young is averaging 15.1 points per game and 7.4 rebounds a game as a key player off the bench for the Sixers this season.
