OKC Thunder: Luguentz Dort suffers right knee injury

The Thunder lost Luguentz Dort to a right knee injury and his status going forward is unknown.

Dort was injured with 4:27 left in the first quarter of an eventual 116-115 win over Miami, taking one of the Thunder’s best perimeter defenders off the floor against a team with several dangerous outside shooters.

Dort collided with Miami’s Jae Crowder, who was setting a screen on Dort. Early in the second quarter, the Thunder announced that Dort would not return.

He had two points in 7 1/2 minutes of action.

"It's a knee right now," coach Billy Donovan said. "I don't know the extent of it. They'll probably end up doing some imaging."
