Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch is thought to have suffered a torn patellar tendon in his knee after a collision with T-Wolves guard Mike Conley late in the fourth quarter of Game 4 Sunday, sources told Shams Charania of the Athletic.

Suns guard Devin Booker fouled Conley with 1:41 remaining in the final frame, causing the latter to fall into his 54-year-old head coach. Finch had to be helped to the locker room and did not return to the bench.

The Timberwolves completed a series sweep of Phoenix, winning Game 4 122-116 behind 40 points from Anthony Edwards.

Finch was a finalist for the Coach of the Year award, which was awarded to the Oklahoma City Thunder's Mark Daigneault earlier Sunday.
