Dallas Mavericks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. had to be helped to the locker room with an apparent lower left leg injury in the second quarter of Tuesday's game against the Golden State Warriors in San Francisco.

Hardaway was driving to the basket with 7:35 left before halftime when he was fouled by Damion Lee and landed awkwardly on his left leg. He was able to take his two free throws -- and make them both -- before teammates were called upon to basically carry him into the locker room for further examination.

The son of former Warriors legend Tim Hardaway was later seen in a wheelchair, being wheeled toward an area where X-rays could be taken on his ankle/foot area.

The Mavericks quickly reported to TNT that he would be out for the rest of the game.

The nine-year veteran began the night averaging 14.3 points in 41 games this season.
