Phoenix Suns reserve big man Dario Saric left Game 1 of the NBA Finals in the first half on Tuesday with a right knee injury and was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

The 6-foot-10 Saric landed awkwardly on a play 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.
