Wrist injury for Enes Kanter could see him miss two months
Enes Kanter fractured his proper forearm punching his hand on a chair on the Oklahoma Metropolis Thunder bench within the second quarter of a 109-98 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday and will miss as much as two months, league sources stated.
The Thunder will re-evaluate Kanter and formally replace his timetable Friday.
Kanter, who had slapped the ground in frustration a couple of minutes earlier, walked to the bench throughout a timeout and slammed his fist into the padded chair. However as he introduced his arm down, the folding chair flipped up barely and Kanter caught his forearm on the steel edge. He rapidly went again to the locker room for X-Rays which confirmed the fracture.
“It is robust, man, particularly to do it the way in which he did it, it is very unlucky,” Russell Westbrook stated. “He is a robust man and he’ll be again higher.
“Issues occur. If he may take it again he positively would. However I feel now now we have to look ahead and take a look at to determine what the constructive issues are and get him again as quickly as doable.”
Thunder coach Billy Donovan stated he needed to withhold touch upon the way in which Kanter’s harm occurred till he had an opportunity to speak to his large man.
