STICK-FIGURE CHET HOLMGREN, NO. 2 PICK IN DRAFT, OUT FOR 2022-23!

By Tommy Matthews

The Thunder’s 7-1, 195-pound rookie Chet Holmgren will miss the 2022-23 season because of a Lisfranc injury to his right foot.

Holmgren, the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s NBA draft, suffered the injury Saturday while defending LeBron James on a fast break during a pro-am game in Seattle.

Holmgren was one of a number of NBA players to participate in the CrawsOver Pro-Am event, along with James, Jayson Tatum, No. 1 overall pick Paolo Banchero, Dejounte Murray and Aaron Gordon.

The game was canceled in the second quarter because of the condition of the court. The unusually humid day in Seattle combined with a full crowd caused repeated wet spots and condensation.

Holmgren averaged 14.0 points and 8.4 rebounds in five games for the Thunder earlier this year at the Las Vegas Summer League.
