Damian Lillard playing through separated rib sustained in Game 2 [report]


Damian Lillard hasn’t looked like himself for much of the Western Conference Finals. That might have something to do with the fact that he’s playing with a separated rib, according to multiple reports.

Lillard is thought to have sustained the injury during the third quarter of Game 2, when Warriors center Kevon Looney fell on top of Lillard while corralling a loose ball. Lillard appeared to yell out in pain during the play.

The Blazers point guard has struggled throughout the entire series, but was especially ineffective during Game 3, going 5-of-18 with 19 points and a team-high five turnovers. Lillard has more turnovers (14) than made field goals (13) through three games.
