After just over five minutes of his Summer League debut, Shaedon Sharpe of the Portland Trail Blazers suffered a left shoulder injury. Sharpe is expected to undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the injury. His status for the remainder of Summer League is unknown at this point.
Sharpe had hit 1-of-3 from the field for two points prior to the injury. The Candian born wing was drafted seventh overall out of Kentucky by the Blazers at the 2022 NBA Draft.
Sharpe did not appear in a game in college, due to some questions about his eligibility. Scouts who saw him play on the high school level and in practices and workouts were intrigued by his offensive abilities. That, in part, led to him being drafted in the top half of the lottery.
