After twisting his ankle late in the game, Damian Lillard’s status may be in question.

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Damian Lillard suffered an ankle injury in the fourth quarter of the Trail Blazers’ disheartening loss to the Mavericks tonight.

He struggled down the stretch, and the situation worsened in the locker room, according to NBC Sports Northwest’s Jason Quick.

Quick relayed Lillard’s struggle to walk, along with his concerns about upcoming games, and ended with an eye-opening image:

With a record of 48-30 after tonight’s loss, the Blazers are attempting to hold off the San Antonio Spurs (45-32) and Utah Jazz (45-33) for the third seed and homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Portland plays in San Antonio Saturday night with the head-to-head tiebreaker on the line, but will first take on the Rockets Thursday night in Houston. The Blazers play the Jazz in their regular season finale next Wednesday.
