Brunson (shoulder) is seven weeks into his rehab, which was expected to be four-to-six months following surgery, Dwain Price of Mavs.com reports. Brunson added that his recovery is "going pretty well," but that it seems unlikely that he'd return in July if the season resumes then. However, he should be ready for next season's training camp. This campaign, he's averaging 8.2 points, 3.3 assists and 2.4 rebounds across 17.9 minutes.
Brunson (shoulder) is planning on being recovered in time to participate in next season's training camp, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports. Brunson underwent shoulder surgery to address a torn labrum in mid-March. He had a similar season to his 2018-19 rookie campaign but set career marks in assists (3.3) and rebounds (2.4) per game, as well as free-throw percentage (81.3) and three-point percentage (35.8). Barring any major roster shakeup, Brunson should remain the Mavericks' backup point guard in 2020-21.
Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle confirmed that Brunson won't return this season after undergoing right shoulder surgery earlier Friday, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports. Brunson was initially deemed out indefinitely after requiring the procedure to address a torn labrum, but Carlisle was able to provide a clearer timeline for the second-year guard's recovery. Even with the current NBA season being suspended and potentially on track to run deeper into the summer than in years past, Carlisle said he doesn't anticipate Brunson to receive full medical clearance until training camp next fall. Brunson will wrap up his sophomore campaign with averages of 8.2 points, 3.3 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 17.9 minutes per game across 57 appearances.
Brunson underwent surgery on his right shoulder Friday to address a torn labrum, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports. The 23-year-old suffered the injury in late February and was attempting to finish the season without going under the knife, but the suspension of the NBA season Wednesday appears to have spurred a change of plan. Brunson remains without an official recovery timetable.
Brunson (shoulder) will remain out for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets. The reserve guard hasn't played since Feb. 21 due to a sprained right shoulder, but he was able to get some on-court work in over the weekend. Consider him very much questionable for Saturday's home matchup against Phoenix.
