Manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that Kershaw (forearm) isn't dealing with any ligament damage, but Kershaw won't be available during the playoffs, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

It's relatively good news for Kershaw as he's avoided a potential UCL injury, but it's still a tough blow for him and the Dodgers, which will now be without their longtime ace should the team win Wednesday's NL Wild Card Game. The veteran left-hander is poised to become a free agent this offseason for the first time in his career, and it appears he'll have the benefit of entering 2022 ostensibly healthy.
