Anthony Bennett Out Four Months With Torn Rotator Cuff

Anthony Bennett will miss four months due to shoulder surgery.

Bennett tore the rotator cuff in his left shoulder.

Bennett complained of pain in his left shoulder in February, but it wasn't deemed serious.

Bennett's draft status as a probable top-10 pick isn't likely be impacted.

“You always would prefer a guy is healthy, works out for you and can play in summer league," one GM told ESPN. "However, I don't think in this case that it will really matter. We got a good feel for his game. He's one of the most NBA-ready prospects in the draft. I wouldn't blink taking him in the top five as long as the surgery is successful."
