The Los Angeles Lakers took down the Dallas Mavericks 73-70 on Monday and veteran Mavs shooting guard Vince Carter went down on the final play of the game with a foot injury while shooting what could have been a game-tying shot.
"I was going right after I caught it and heard it pop,'' Carter said, according tot the Dallas Morning News. "But it's not broken." However, Carter was on crutches after the game.
The diagnosis was that he had a sprained left foot after he had X-rays, the paper reports, and he likely will have further tests Tuesday.
The 34-year-old eight-time All-Star, the fifth overall pick in the 1998 draft by the Golden State Warriors and the Rookie of the Year in 1999, is averaging 9.5 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
