Blazers say Damian Lillard sprained his right ankle and is probable to return vs. Grizzlies.— Joe Freeman (@BlazerFreeman) November 21, 2017
With just under 3 minutes remaining in the second quarter of Monday evening’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Damian Lillard drove to rim down left side of the lane. As he prepared to jump, he stepped on Chandler Parsons’ foot, rolling his right ankle.
He cursed as he limped off the court and pounded a chair when he made it to the bench. Tough. https://t.co/z9yN1kVGBg— Joe Freeman (@BlazerFreeman) November 21, 2017
With just under a minute remaining in the half, Lillard was escorted to the locker room with the training staff to get his ankle further evaluated.
Lillard’s status was not available as halftime began. We will update this story as more information becomes available.
Damian Lillard announced post game that he would be available for Wednesday’s game vs the Philadelphia 76ers.
