On Saturday night, Los Angeles Clippers guard Milos Teodosic went down to the ground in pain. The Serbian guard landed awkwardly and many speculated an ankle or Achilles injury could be the reason why.
Teodosic will out indefinitely after he suffered a plantar fascia injury in his left foot during the second quarter of Saturday’s win over the Phoenix Suns.
The Clippers formally announced the injury on Sunday afternoon.

Teodosic, 30, signed a two-year, $12.3 million deal with the Clippers in July to formally make his move to the NBA after years of interest from teams. Teodosic started each of the team’s first two games at point guard. In 32 minutes over that stretch, he recorded 11 points and eight assists.
Without Teodosic, the Clippers will presumably start Patrick Beverley in his place and either Austin Rivers or Lou Williams alongside him. LA loses a terrifc playmaker and passer for an unspecified amount of time. Other players who have suffered a similar injury in the past were sidelined 6-8 week. The same could be the fate for Teodosic.
