OKC Thunder: Luguentz Dort out with right knee sprain

Thunder guard Luguentz Dort sustained a right knee sprain Wednesday night against the Heat, the team announced Thursday. 

Dort exited the game after colliding with Miami forward Jae Crowder in the first quarter. 

Dort has been ruled out for the Thunder's final seeding game Friday against the Clippers. He will be considered day-to-day after that, according to a team spokesman. 

The undrafted rookie has started the last 28 games for the Thunder. If healthy, he's likely to defend James Harden in the Thunder's series against the Rockets. 

Thunder point guards Chris Paul and Dennis Schroder will also be out Friday. 

Paul is out with a left hand sprain and Schroder remains in self isolation after returning to the bubble following the birth of his daughter.
