Damian Lillard leaves bubble due to knee injury

The Portland Trail Blazers announced that point guard Damian Lillard is leaving the NBA campus in Orlando on Thursday for further examination of his injured right knee. He will fly to Portland for treatment. Lillard's availability to return to the bubble is "yet to be determined," according to the release.

Lillard injured his right knee while driving to the basket during the third quarter of Game 4 against the Los Angeles Lakers. He had previously dislocated his finger in Game 2 of this series, but he managed to play through it. 

Prior to his injury, Lillard was averaging 24.3 points, 4.3 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 3.3 threes in the Blazers' first-round match-up against the Lakers. Portland is currently down 3-1 in the series. Game 5 was scheduled for Wednesday, but it was postponed.

Lillard was unanimously named the Most Valuable Player of the bubble's seeding games, averaging 37.6 points, 9.6 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game.
