In the Portland Trail Blazers' 110-99 Game 3 loss to the Golden State Warriors, Damian Lillard had one of his least efficient games of this postseason.

In 40 minutes of action, en route to scoring 19 points, he shot 5-of-18 (27.8%) from the field and 3-of-9 from long distance, finishing with five of the team's 11 turnovers.

Lillard has been below his best against the Warriors and according to The Athletics' Shams Charania, he has been hampered by injury, playing Game 3 with separated ribs.

As per multiple reports, Lillard appeared to suffer the injury in Game 2.

However, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon, Lillard's injury had minimal impact on his Game 3 performance.

Down 3-0 against the Warriors, the Trail Blazers will look to avoid a sweep in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday.
