I would have handled that the same way as the crew did—wait for the offense to complete their attack, which was one crosscourt pass and a 3pt shot, then halt the action to allow the injured player to be replaced.

The only thing that I would have done differently is not run away from the player who went down with an injured ankle as Trail. It isn’t good for the crew to have a player out of their field of vision. The L and C are perfectly capable of officiating the ensuing possession. Keep all ten players in view at all times.

My attention was immediately drawn to the awkward gait of the official, lol.

Kidding aside, it appeared to be handled properly. Wait for offense to discontinue attack or a dead ball.
If some rules are never enforced, then why do they exist?

As Trail, I'm lingering in the back court to keep my eye on the injured player. Everything else is the same as I've handled these situations.
