With 7:02 remaining in the third quarter of Sunday afternoon’s contest against the Miami Heat, Maurice Harkless sprinted down court to track down a Goran Dragic layup attempt. While Harkless was ultimately successful on the chase-down block, Dragic was off-balance as he came down and landed on the backside of Harkless’ right ankle.

As you can see here, it didn’t look good. Harkless needed to be helped up by his teammates and went over to Blazers trainer Geoff Clark to get it looked at.

While he’s moving a bit gingerly, so far Harkless has stayed in the game.
