MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Phoenix Suns guard Grayson Allen appeared to aggravate the sprained right ankle he suffered in the playoff opener, forcing him to hobble off in the third quarter of Game 2 against the Minnesota Timberwolves in the first-round series on Tuesday.

Allen was guarding Mike Conley on a drive to the lane when he went airborne to try to block the shot and landed awkwardly on his right leg. Allen had to be helped away from the court and into the locker room.

The Suns had listed Allen, who led the NBA in 3-point shooting percentage this season, as questionable. Before the game, coach Frank Vogel praised Allen's toughness and determination to play.

Allen went 0 for 3 from the floor in 25 minutes with four points in Game 1. He was 1 for 2 in 17 minutes with three points in Game 2.
