Justin Bieber sprains ankle playing basketball before Cincinnati show at U.S. Bank Arena

CINCINNATI - Biebs can't catch a break.

In town for a Friday night concert at the U.S. Bank Arena, singer Justin Bieber sprained his ankle a few hours beforehand playing basketball at LA Fitness in Oakley. The mishap came just a week after he fell into a hole on stage during a concert in Saskatoon, Canada. He quickly recovered and told the crowd: "Good thing I'm like a cat and landed on my feet."

After the sprain, Bieber posted a photo on Instagram of him icing his swollen left ankle but promised he was "still gonna crush" later that night in Ohio.
