The Golden State Warriors lost one of their most important players during Game 3 against the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night.
Auto Porter Jr. left the game in the middle of the second quarter.
He was finally seen hubbling and crying before heading to the locker room for the rest of the game.
Steve Kerr Auto Porter Jr. called the foot injury “definitely related” but the X-ray was negative and he was examining it after the injury. Fighters expect to know more in the next 24 hours.

Head coach Steve Kerr said Porter’s leg injury was “of course worrying” but said the X-ray was negative and was still being examined after the injury.
The team will be able to find out about Porter’s condition in the coming days.
The good news is that the Warriors have yet to secure a win without Porter – and they may even be able to give him some time to rest.
Oh no, auto
Porter’s pain was evident immediately after his bad landing in the second trimester.
Once the fans saw him licking around, they knew he would probably sit for the rest of the game.
In the end he played only 6 minutes and scored only 2 points.
Prior to his injury, Porter was an important part of the team’s playoff push.
He has averaged 8.2 points and 5.7 rebounds this post season.
The Georgetown Graduate Warriors will be an important part of the defense and will need a force to move forward.
However, now that the Warriors are 3-0 up on top of the Mavericks, they will definitely win the series and secure a place in the NBA Finals.
While the path to the finals is certain, Porter can take some rest and recover.
Hopefully, he needs an extra few days off on his feet to get back to the finals.
