Tracking back in transition, Millsap was bumped by a crossing Alex Caruso, and his knee appeared to buckle as he regained footing. Millsap, who immediately began limping toward the baseline and subbed out on the ensuing stoppage, left the game with 10 points and 5 rebounds — right at his season averages — in 15-plus minutes.
