An ankle injury has failed to sour another breakout NBA performance from New Zealand rookie Steven Adams, as Oklahoma City claimed a thrilling 115-111 win over Minnesota yesterday.

Adams was on track for his second career double-double (10 points, 10 rebounds) when he sprained his right ankle and hobbled to the locker room.

The Kiwi centre did not return to the game but still finished with the impressive stat-line of 10 points and nine rebounds from his 16 minutes on court at the Target Centre in Minneapolis.

Adams hit four of five shots from the field, nailed both of his free throws and then downplayed concerns over his ankle with a typical tweet.

"Just a flesh wound. #ThunderUp #KiwiBlood," Adams posted, further endearing himself to Thunder fans in New Zealand and around the world.
