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.
Brunson (shoulder) completed an on-court workout prior to Sunday's game against the Pacers, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports.
Brunson will miss his eighth straight game Sunday and remains without an official timeline to return from his sprained right shoulder, but his ability to take part in some on-court work can be taken as a positive sign. The Mavericks will likely have a more definitive target date for the guard's return to action once he's able to take part in practice in some capacity.
Coach Rick Carlisle indicated Wednesday that Brunson (shoulder) is considered week-to-week, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Brunson is apparently taking part in running and shooting, but he's otherwise fairly limited. The 23-year-old suffered a torn labrum in his right shoulder Feb. 22 and doesn't have a clear timetable for his return, but he's attempting to recover enough without surgery to retake the court again this season.
Brunson (shoulder) confirmed Friday that he has a torn labrum, but he'll look to heal well enough to finish this season without surgery, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
While it's possible Brunson will undergo surgery over the summer, his current focus is to rehab and return this season. More information on a timetable may emerge once he hits various milestones in his recovery.
The Mavericks fear Brunson has a torn labrum in his right shoulder, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.
Brunson has missed the past three games due to the shoulder injury, and he's expected to remain sidelined for the rest of Dallas' road trip -- which spans three more games and ends Monday in Chicago -- and potentially beyond then. While he's apparently planning on returning at some point before the end of the season, postseason surgery remains a possibility for the 23-year-old guard.
Coach Rick Carlisle said Brunson (shoulder), who is out for Monday's game against Minnesota, will not play during the Mavericks' upcoming four-game road trip, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Brunson injured his shoulder during Saturday's loss to the Hawks, and it turns out he'll miss at least the next five games as a result. In his absence, Seth Curry, Delon Wright and Tim Hardaway are all candidates to see increased run.
Brunson (shoulder) is listed as out for Monday's game against Minnesota.
Brunson dislocated his shoulder Saturday night, and he'll miss at least one game as the Mavs head into a four-game week. The Villanova product said Saturday night that he was able to pop the shoulder back into place, but he's presumably dealing with a fair amount of soreness that could linger.
Brunson suffered a dislocated right shoulder during Saturday's loss to the Hawks, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The 23-year-old said his shoulder thankfully popped back in quickly, but he didn't return to the game with what the team labeled as a shoulder sprain. Brunson sustained the injury on the first play of the game and should be considered questionable for Monday's matchup with the Timberwolves until the team updates his status.
Brunson won't return Saturday against the Hawks after spraining his right shoulder on the first play of the game.
Brunson took a hard fall and immediately left for the locker room. It's not yet clear how much time he's expected to miss. Delon Wright should see increased run since Luka Doncic (ankle) is also sidelined.
Brunson is starting Saturday's game in Atlanta.
Luka Doncic (ankle) is unavailable Saturday, pushing Brunson into the starting lineup for the 16th time this season. So far he's averaging 12.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists in 27.9 minutes during those games.
Brunson will come off the bench Friday against the Magic.
Brunson will come off the bench for the first time since Jan. 31, with coach Rick Carlisle giving Seth Curry the nod in the backcourt. Across 40 appearances as a reserve, Brunson is averaging 6.7 points, 2.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 14.4 minutes.
Brunson will start Wednesday's game against Sacramento, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.
In a late change to the starting lineup, Brunson will take on first-team shooting guard duties instead of Courtney Lee, who was initially pegged as the starter. On the year, the Villanova product's averaging 8.4 points, 3.4 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game.
Brunson will come off the bench for Wednesday's tilt with Sacramento, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports.
Brunson will shift back into his usual bench role with Luka Doncic making his return from a seven-game absence. In 18.3 minutes per game this season, the second-year guard out of Villanova is averaging 8.4 points, 3.4 assists and 2.5 rebounds.
Brunson notched 20 points (6-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six assists and two rebounds in 33 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 121-107 loss against the Grizzlies.
Brunson has started in Dallas' last three games, and he has reached the 20-point plateau in two of those outings. He has shot 41.7 percent from three-point range in those three contests. Considering how depleted the Mavericks' backcourt is, Brunson should remain a starter while logging heavy minutes, at least on a short-term basis.
Brunson notched 27 points (12-22 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight assists and four rebounds during Saturday's 123-100 win over the Hawks.
Brunson took advantage of Luka Doncic's absence and Tim Hardaway's struggles to deliver his best scoring output of the season in what was also his first start since Dec. 31. Brunson has scored in double digits in four of his last eight outings, and he should continue in the starting lineup as long as Doncic remains sidelined with an ankle injury. Brunson has logged at least 20 minutes in each of his last three games as well, which is also an encouraging sign moving forward.
Brunson will start Saturday's game against the Hawks, Callie Caplan of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Brunson came off the bench in the first game of Luka Doncic's (ankle) absence, but he'll get the starting nod Saturday. In eight previous starts, he's averaging 11.8 points, 6.1 assists and 4.0 rebounds.
Brunson contributed 17 points (6-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and an assist during Thursday night's 133-125 victory over Portland.
Brunson was one of six Mavericks with double-digit scoring in what was a dominant offensive showing. Dallas matched its highest scoring half with 78 in the first behind 13 made threes. The Mavericks finished the night with 22 made threes, four of which came from Brunson. He has seen a sizable downturn in playing time through January, but he has now notched at least 13 points in two of his last three contests.
Brunson finished with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four assists and one rebound in 14 minutes during Wednesday's 107-106 loss to the Nuggets.
Brunson was a hot pickup while Luka Doncic was sidelined for a week in the second half of December. However, since Doncic returned to the rotation Brunson has returned to his previous status as waiver wire fodder. Apart from nights when Doncic doesn't play, Brunson offers very little for fantasy purposes.
