The Portland Trail Blazers’ Al-Farouq Aminu exited the game against the Phoenix Suns with a reported left quad injury. The play, which happened in the first quarter, looked innocuous in real-time. The team announced that he was diagnosed with a left-calf sprain.
The Blazers announced Wednesday afternoon that Aminu will not play against the Los Angeles Clippers.
