Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Chet Holmgren is undergoing tests for a possible right foot injury suffered in a pro-am game Saturday in Seattle, a team spokesperson told ESPN.
“Chet is in the process of undergoing evaluation, and when we have an update, we will communicate,” the spokesperson told ESPN.
Holmgren, the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s NBA draft, suffered the injury early in the CrawsOver Pro-Am event while defending LeBron James on a fast break.
Holmgren was one of a number of NBA players to participate in the pro-am, along with James, Jayson Tatum, No. 1 overall pick Paolo Banchero, Dejounte Murray and Aaron Gordon.
The game was canceled in the second quarter because of the condition of the court. The unusually humid day in Seattle combined with a full crowd caused repeated wet spots and condensation.
The 7-foot-1, 195-pound Holmgren averaged 14.0 points and 8.4 rebounds in five games for the Thunder earlier this year at the Las Vegas Summer League.
