Jack87 news today, asianbookie Oklahoma City Thunder first-year rookie Chet Holmgren will not play in the 2022-23 NBA season after injuring Lisfranc in his right foot, the team announced Thursday.

“Certainly, bk8 we’re disappointed in Chet, especially given his excitement to be on the court with his teammates this season,” Thunder general manager Sam Presti said in a statement. “We know Chet has a long career ahead of our organization and the Oklahoma City community. One of the things that impressed us most in selecting Chet was his determination and focus . . We hope that same tenacity will carry him through this difficult time as we work together and support him during his recovery.”

Earlier this month, Holmgren was injured while guarding LeBron James on a fast-break possession in a CrawsOver Pro-Am game. The game ended early because of condensation on the field.

The second overall pick in the 2022 NBA draft, Holmgren has an extraordinary static talent of 2.13 meters and a 2.19-meter wingspan. He’s an excellent blocker and an efficient paint finisher. However, as a 7-footer, he weighs less than 90 kilograms and is too skinny to match the monsters in the paint.

Presti revealed that bk8 malaysia Holmgren has returned to weight training and shooting practice without putting pressure on his feet. The team has consulted with three of the nation’s top foot specialists and decided to have the 20-year-old undergo foot surgery.

“Just getting stronger, just looking at things differently, just learning the NBA, he’s going to get better,” Presti said. “It’s all going to happen. He’s going to be able to shoot. He’s going to be able to use the ball. Do a lot of things.”

Several top-three rookies missed their first (two) bk8 asianbookie NBA seasons due to injury: Greg Oden in 2007 (No. 1), Blake Griffin in 2009 (No. 1), Joey in 2014 Embiid (No. 3) and Ben Simmons (No. 1 in 2016). Three of the aforementioned three grew into star players over the next few years.

Presti is optimistic about Holmgren’s prospects: “I don’t think missing the first year will really change the outcome.”
