Saric suffered the injury in the first quarter of the Suns’ 118-105 win over the Bucks in Game 1 of the Finals. His right knee buckled when he landed on a jump stop after trying to score against Bucks center Brook Lopez. Saric limped off the floor ad never returned.

Phoenix will now likely turn to fellow forward/centers Torrey Craig and Frank Kaminsky to help replace Saric, who was playing about 11 minutes a game in the postseason.

Saric, 27, is 6-foot-10 and averaging 4.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in 14 postseason games. For more on the Suns, check out our Game 1 notes on Hoops Wire right here.
