Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Chet Holmgren undergoing tests for foot injury suffered at pro-am

Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Chet Holmgren is undergoing tests for a possible right foot injury he sustained in a Pro-Am game in Seattle on Saturday, a team spokesman told ESPN.

“Chet is under evaluation and when we have an update we will communicate,” the rep told ESPN.

Holmgren, the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s NBA draft, suffered the injury early in the CrawsOver Pro-Am event while defending LeBron James on a quick break.

Holmgren was one of several NBA players to compete in the Pro-Am, along with James, Jayson Tatum, Paolo Banchero, Dejounte Murray, and Aaron Gordon.

The game was abandoned in the second quarter due to the condition of the field. The unusually wet Seattle day combined with a packed crowd caused repeated wet patches and condensation.

The 7-foot-1, 195-pound Holmgren averaged 14.0 points and 8.4 rebounds in five games for the Thunder earlier this year in the Las Vegas Summer League.
