SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah Jazz forward Paul Millsap has left a game against the Sacramento Kings in the third quarter with a knee injury. He will not return.

Millsap, who had 12 points and seven rebounds Saturday night, went to the locker room with 4:48 remaining in the quarter. He was diagnosed with a strained left patella tendon.

The power forward had left earlier in the period to get a brace refitted, but just more than a minute later he signaled to the bench that he couldn’t continue.

Millsap averages 17.2 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. He has been slowed by several nagging injuries, including a sprained thumb.

The Kings played without Omri Casspi, bothered by a stiff back in the hours before tipoff. Sacramento welcomed back Francisco Garcia after he missed 21 games due to a strained left calf.
