Toronto Raptors guard Delon Wright is expected to miss a month with a dislocated right shoulder, league sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Wright was injured in the second quarter of last week’s victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.
The team said Wednesday that Wright visited Dr. Riley Williams at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, and it was decided that Wright does not need surgery on the shoulder at this time.
Wright missed the first four months of last season after undergoing surgery on the same shoulder.
Wright is averaging 7.6 points and 20.9 minutes this season as the primary backup to starting point guard Kyle Lowry.
And every team has at least one player fans should be excited about watching. Combined with the technology of lighter and more protective equipment, the entertainment value has never been higher. That’s what I’m thankful for.
Antetokounmpo told reporters that this is the same injury that bothered him this summer, when knee pain prevented the forward from playing for the Greek national team in the European championship. He said he wants to be cautious and is planning to return Saturday against the Jazz.
The 22-year-old is averaging career highs of 29.7 points (second in the league) and 10.3 rebounds per game.
The shorthanded Bucks also were without guard Matthew Dellavedova, forward Mirza Teletovic and center John Henson on Wednesday.
Derek Carr struggled to 237 yards, one touchdown and one interception on 49 attempts against New England on Sunday. Carr has now managed exactly one touchdown during six of his past seven games and a total of nine scores and eight interceptions during the seven-game span. Believe it or not, Carr sits 23rd among quarterbacks in fantasy points this season.
