Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic injured his left ankle during Game 3 of team’s series against the Clippers.
Doncic was seen limping off the court, unable to put weight on his left ankle as he headed to the locker room. He did not return to the contest, which Dallas lost by a score of 130-22. Los Angeles now leads the series 2-1.
The 21-year-old will undergo an MRI and his status for Game 4 is up in the air.
