Lottery Pick Out Six Weeks With Fracture

The Oklahoma City Thunder's No. 11 overall pick in the NBA Draft from this past June, Ousmane Dieng, will be out of action for six weeks, the team has announced, with a wrist fracture.

Dieng suffered a small, non-displaced fracture in his right wrist during a G League game last night, and will miss at least a month-and-a-half. 

The 19-year-old 6'10" forward out of France has been splitting time between the Thunder and their G League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Blue. He's played 14 games for the Thunder, averaging 15.7 minutes per contest, 4.4 points and 2.9 rebounds. 

With the Blue in the G League, Dieng was having some success, averaging 15.8 points in 11 games, with 8.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocked shots. He had four straight double-doubles before going down with his wrist injury, including 22 points, 16 rebounds and five assists on Tuesday. 

It's a tough break for Dieng, as he was clearly coming into his own.
