Testimony has ended in the trial to determine whether Donald Sterling's estranged wife can sell the Los Angeles Clippers.

Shelly Sterling, who had testified early in the trial, was expected to be the final witness Wednesday, but her husband's lawyers decided not to call her to the stand.

Instead, they called a psychiatric expert to discuss the protocol of examinations like the ones given to Donald Sterling to determine his mental competency and ability to act as owner.

Most of the expert's testimony drew objections from Shelly Sterling's attorneys, and the judge said he didn't see how it would help him reach a decision.

Closing arguments are set for Monday before the judge decides whether Shelly Sterling can sell the team for $2 billion to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.
