Top Lottery Pick Suffers Shoulder Injury At Summer League

The Portland Trail Blazers are holding their breath after a shoulder injury suffered in a Summer League game Thursday night by their No. 7 pick in the NBA Draft, Shaedon Sharpe. 

He's expected to undergo an MRI, as per Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. 

With his early exit, Sharpe finished the Summer League game with just two points, but they were an impressive two on a tough shot:

The 19-year-old was a five-star recruit who committed to the University of Kentucky Wildcats but didn't play a single game in college. Nevertheless, the 6'6" Canadian guard was still a relatively high lottery pick for Portland due to the immense upside of his explosive athleticism and reported 7-foot wingspan. 

Hopefully, the shoulder issue is nothing serious; it was reported that his removal from the game was only precautionary.
