Raptors center Jonas Valanviunas left Saturday’s Game 3 against the Heat with a right ankle sprain and will not return, the team announced. His ailment will not require X-rays.
Valanciunas rolled his ankle midway through the third quarter when he tried to block Dwyane Wade’s shot and landed awkwardly. He hobbled off the floor and into the locker room.
Bismack Biyombo entered the game for Valanciunas, who finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds on 7-of-12 shooting.
Heat center Hassan Whiteside was also knocked out of Game 3, with a knee sprain.
