  • Thunder's Chet Holmgren: Surgery in rearview

    Holmgren (foot) underwent surgery Tuesday to address a Linsfranc injury suffered in a pro-am event, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    Holmgren will miss the entire 2022-23 season because of the ruptured tendon, delaying his NBA debut to 2023-24. Foot issues can become problematic for big men, but Holmgren's youth and relatively slender frame (7-foot-1, 195 pounds) could work in his favor in terms of his recovery. His absence could open playing time for other bigs such as Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, Aleksej Pokusevski and Darius Bazley.

  • Thunder's Chet Holmgren: Out for season with Lisfranc injury

    The Thunder announced Thursday that Holmgren has been diagnosed with a Lisfranc injury to his right foot and will miss the entire 2022-23 season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Holmgren ruptured the tendon in his right foot while competing in a pro-am game in Seattle last weekend and will now require surgery, pushing his NBA debut back to the 2023-24 season. Foot injuries are particularly problematic for big men compared to guard and wing players, but the Thunder are hopeful that Holmgren's youth and slighter build allow him to navigate the lengthy rehab process without any major setbacks to his long-term development. Despite missing his entire first season in the NBA, the 7-foot-1, 195-pound Holmgren still looks to be a strong asset in dynasty leagues, but managers in redraft leagues can now officially take him off their boards for 2022-23. Holmgren's absence for the upcoming season should open more playing time in the frontcourt for the Thunder's other young bigs, namely Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, Aleksej Pokusevski and Darius Bazley.

  • Thunder's Chet Holmgren: Significant injury feared

Per Charania, exams have shown Holmgren has potential torn ligaments, but a return timetable is still being determined based on further evaluations.

  • Thunder's Chet Holmgren: Sitting out Friday

    Holmgren will not take the floor during Friday's Summer League game versus the Warriors, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    There's no mention of an injury, so this is likely just a rest day for Holmgren. The No. 2 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft has gotten off to a solid start over his five Summer League appearances, tallying 14 points, 8.4 rebounds, two assists, 2.8 blocks and a steal per game. He will have one more chance to play to close out Summer League either Saturday or Sunday.

  • Thunder's Chet Holmgren: Puts up 16 and 10 in Vegas

    Holmgren finished Monday night's Las Vegas Summer League game against the Magic with 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), 10 points, two assists and two blocks in 27 minutes.

    While the Magic opting to rest Paolo Banchero robbed us of a No. 1 vs. No. 2 pick showdown, Holmgren once again took center stage and showed why he's one of the most unique prospects in recent memory. The big man continues to show flashes of two-way brilliance. He's equally comfortable pulling up from three off the dribble as he is swatting shots at the rim. Despite Holmgren's dominance in Summer League, there's some healthy skepticism as to how it will translate to actual NBA competition. We'll have to wait and see on that front, but Holmgren has already shown more than enough to build sufficient hype for his 2022-23 fantasy potential.

  • Thunder's Chet Holmgren: Resting Thursday, good for LVSL

    Holmgren will rest for Thursday's Summer League game against the 76ers but will be available for the Thunder's first game in Las Vegas Summer League, which is Saturday against the Rockets, Steve McGehee of News 9 Oklahoma City reports.

    Holmgren finished Tuesday night's Salt Lake City Summer League game against the Jazz with 23 points (7-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, six blocks and a steal in 24 minutes. After the great performance, the organization will opt to give the rookie the final game of Salt Lake City Summer League off to rest up before Las Vegas.

  • Thunder's Chet Holmgren: Dominant in Summer League debut

    Holmgren finished Tuesday night's Salt Lake City Summer League game against the Jazz with 23 points (7-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, six blocks and a steal in 24 minutes.

    Getting his first taste of NBA action, Holmgren could not have looked much more impressive, as he dominated the game on both ends while matching up against the much larger Tacko Fall. Holmgren had 13 points and three three-pointers in the first quarter alone, helping the Thunder jump out to an early 20-point advantage. It's important to remember, of course, that it's only Summer League, but Holmgren certainly has the makings of a potential impact fantasy player in Year 1.

  • Thunder's Chet Holmgren: Goes No. 2 overall to OKC

    Holmgren was selected by the Thunder with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

    A unique prospect, Holmgren will get plenty of opportunities to grow and show his skillset with the rebuilding Thunder. The 7-foot, 195-pound big blocked 3.6 shots in 26.9 minutes per game and was named WCC Defensive Player of the Year. While his frame has some analysts concerned, Holmgren's perimeter shooting and playmaking ability will help make up for some of those issues. He averaged 14.1 points while shooting 60.7 percent from the field for Gonzaga and hit 1.3 threes per game at 39.0 percent.
