LAS VEGAS – Will Barton had an active first half for the Blazers in Summer League action on Sunday versus the Lakers, getting to the rim for a couple of highlight plays that included a reverse layup and a flying slam dunk.
In the third quarter, however, Barton suffered a knee injury and his afternoon was finished.
As you can see in the clip above, it didn’t look great — Barton was standing still and a player on the floor (Michael Snaer, if you must know) rolled onto the right knee, causing him to collapse.
Barton had to be helped off the court, and the injury was described officially as a right knee strain.
As far as the rest of the game went, Portland ended up getting blown out for the second straight contest, despite having one of the rosters most full of legitimate NBA players. Piling up 22 turnovers will do that to you, but on the bright side, C.J. McCollum once again had a relatively solid outing, and finished with 15 points and five assists.
