Damian Lillard ruled out of Game 5 against Los Angeles Lakers with injury

Damian Lillard is set to miss the game against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 5 due to a right knee sprain.

The Portland Trail Blazers’ point guard suffered an injury to his right knee during Game Four against the Los Angeles Lakers, hobbling off the court during the third quarter.

Lillard underwent an MRI following the game, but the team announced the results were “inconclusive,” and that a second MRI would be performed Tuesday afternoon.

The Blazers are down 3-1 to the Lakers, who have won three straight after losing Game 1. While Portland will play hard in Game 5 without Lillard, the odds of them winning are very low.

The Lakers could close out the series with a Game 5 win on Wednesday.
