Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Chet Holmgren undergoing tests for foot injury suffered at pro-am
Chet Holmgren, a rookie with the Oklahoma City Thunder, is having examinations for a potential right foot injury sustained during a pro-am game on Saturday in Seattle, a team representative informed ESPN.
Chet is currently being evaluated, and when there is an update, we will let you know, the official told ESPN.
When guarding LeBron James on a fast break, Holmgren, the No. 2 overall choice in this year's NBA draught, was injured early in the CrawsOver Pro-Am competition.
Along with James, Jayson Tatum, Paolo Banchero, Dejounte Murray, Aaron Gordon, and the No. 1 overall pick, Holmgren was one of several NBA players who took part in the pro-am.
Due to the state of the court, the game was abandoned in the second quarter.
There were numerous damp places and condensation due to the Seattle day's exceptionally high humidity paired with the dense crowd.
Earlier this year at the Las Vegas Summer League, the 7-foot-1, 195-pound Holmgren averaged 14.0 points and 8.4 rebounds in five games for the Thunder.
