New, comments

A leg injury has sidelined Portland’s best player against San Antonio.

NBA: San Antonio Spurs at Portland Trail Blazers Craig Mitchelldyer-USA TODAY Sports

Damian Lillard left the game between the San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers Wednesday night with an undisclosed injury to his right leg. With 7:09 left in the 3rd quarter Lillard committed an intentional foul, pulling himself off the floor, obviously limping. The play, which occurred seconds earlier, can be seen in this video from NBC Sports Northwest.

The Oregonian’s Mike Richman updates:

Lillard had played 24 minutes in the game at the time he exited, scoring 14. We will update the story as information becomes available.

Update: The Trail Blazers are calling Lillard’s injury a contusion and say he’s likely to return.

Update 2: Lillard returned to the game but had limited effectiveness. Coach Stotts addressed that in his post game comments.
