Clippers guard Landry Shamet suffers ankle injury, exits

LOS ANGELES -- Clippers guard Landry Shamet suffered a left ankle injury in the second half of a 98-88 win over the Toronto Raptors on Monday and did not return.

Shamet suffered the injury with 1:45 remaining in the third quarter. Shamet was backpedaling on defense with Fred VanVleet dribbling toward the basket when VanVleet's foot appeared to contact Shamet's left foot. The Clippers' guard fell to the floor and cringed in pain.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers did not have an update on the severity of the injury other than to say it was an ankle sprain/lower leg injury.

Shamet needed to be helped to the locker room and was unable to put much pressure on his left leg. He has started all 10 games for the Clippers this season and was averaging 9.4 points per game entering Monday.
