Phoenix Suns forward Dario Saric left Sunday’s scrimmage game against the Boston Celtics after rolling his left ankle a few minutes before halftime and didn’t return.

Saric stepped on center Frank Kaminsky’s foot while guarding Celtics forward Jaylen Brown and fell to the floor. He was limping during the next two plays and eventually left the court to receive treatment on the sideline.

There was no update on his status following the game.

Saric was second on the team with 12 points prior to leaving the game and had eight rebounds.

The Suns eventually lost to the Celtics, 117-103.

One scrimmage game remains for the Suns against the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday at noon before beginning seeding games against the Washington Wizards at 1 p.m. on Friday.
