The 6-foot-10 Saric landed awkwardly on a play in the first quarter and left with 1:43 remaining in the opening period. He headed to the Suns' locker room in the second quarter and was having trouble putting weight on his right leg.

Saric did not score a point in two minutes of action against the Milwaukee Bucks and was 0-for-1 from the field with one rebound.

Saric averaged 8.7 points with 3.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists during 50 regular-season games (four starts) this season. In 13 playoff games off the bench before the start of the Finals, the fifth-year player produced 4.8 points with 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.
