The San Antonio Spurs have announced Dejounte Murray will remain out for the rest of the game after spraining his left ankle while contesting a shot from Kristaps Porzingis early in the first quarter.

There has been no word on the severity of the sprain or whether or not it will keep the fourth-year point guard out of any upcoming games, though he was able to walk off the court without assistance.

Although the Silver and Black trailed the Dallas Mavericks by as many as 18 points midway through the second quarter, they chipped away at the deficit to head into halftime down 58-68.
