LATEST: LEONARDO DiCAPRIO's mystery leg sprain came from the basketball court. The 26-year-old movie star was spotted hobbling around on crutches, his right leg in plaster, earlier this week (beg08JUL01) but his publicists refused to comment on his injury.
But one pal admits he picked up the injury after a bad fall during a game of basketball in Santa Monica, California. The pal says,
"He was writhing in pain, holding his leg. He thought his leg might be broken. " Leo's fellow players teamed up to carry him off the court and then took him to hospital. (KL/NE/KMW)
