The Portland Trail Blazers loss to the Denver Nuggets just got a little worse.

As if the night couldn't get any worse for Portland... Nassir Little down on the baseline, then helped up off the floor and helped back to the locker room— Jamie Hudson (@JamieHudsonNBCS) February 5, 2020
The Trail Blazers training staff, as well as teammate Jusuf Nurkic and others, attended to Little on the court. He was not able to put any weight on his left leg and was helped off the court to the Trail Blazers locker room.
In 38 games, Little has averaged 3.8 points and 2.5 rebounds per game.

No official update on the severity of the injury, but Nassir Little is standing by his locker at the moment. Able to put weight on his left ankle, but walking gingerly. #RipCity— Chris Burkhardt (@CBurkhardtNBCS) February 5, 2020
