Olivier Sarr to miss time with right wrist sprain
Trail Blazers center Olivier Sarr will miss some time after an MRI confirmed a right wrist sprain, the team announced today.
Sarr will be further evaluated in one week, when a timeline for return will be determined.
Earlier Thursday, the team announced it had converted Sarr to a two-way contract, terms of which were not disclosed.
Sarr suffered the injury in Tuesday’s preseason loss at Golden State. In three preseason contests, Sarr averaged 4.7 points (50.0% FG, 1-3 3-PT, 83.3 FT%), 2.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 11.9 minutes per game.
The France native and Kentucky Wildcat alum played in 22 games as a rookie last season with Oklahoma City, averaging 7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.
The Blazers open the regular season on Wed. Oct 19th at Sacramento.
