PHOENIX — The Phoenix Suns announced Wednesday that forward Dario Saric is out indefinitely with a torn ACL.
Saric suffered the right knee injury during Game 1 of the NBA Finals after only playing two minutes in the game off of the bench.
Saric had averaged 11 minutes per game off of the bench in the playoffs, largely while DeAndre Ayton got rest during the games.
“It literally breaks your heart. Dario is a guy I’ve been with twice. I coached him in Philly,” coach Monty Williams said Wednesday. To get a chance to be with him here, he’s what Suns basketball is all about.”
Frank Kaminsky and Torrey Craig will most likely get extra minutes in place of Saric moving forward in the finals.
The Suns took a 1-0 series lead in the NBA Finals over Milwaukee Tuesday night with a 118-105 win.
