Trail Blazers rookie sensation Scoot Henderson will not play again at Vegas Summer League, per a report from The Oregonian’s Aaron Fentress.
Henderson played 21 minutes in his summer league debut on July 7th against Houston before exiting with a right shoulder injury. Henderson underwent an MRI and was ruled day-to-day but missed the following games against San Antonio and Charlotte and will miss Thursday’s game against Orlando.
Following Thursday’s result, the Blazers will either be entered into one consolation game or the four-team championship bracket to be played next week.
Last year’s lottery pick, Shaedon Sharpe, also had his summer league cut short after suffering an injury after five minutes to his left shoulder and missed the remainder of the team’s eventual run to the 2022 Summer League title.
According to an NBA source, Blazers rookie Scoot Henderson has been shut down for the rest of summer league with a right shoulder strain that occurred Friday against Houston. #ripcity pic.twitter.com/c83ktbeUdn
