Trail Blazers' Shaedon Sharpe cleared from shoulder injury




 

Portland Trail Blazers rookie Shaedon Sharpe has been cleared from a previous left shoulder injury suffered in the Las Vegas Summer League, according to Casey Holdahl of TrailBlazers.com.

Sharpe suffered the injury on July 7 just five minutes into his debut. The team eventually ruled him out of playing again after an MRI revealed that he suffered a small labral tear in his shoulder.

He did not need surgery to address it.

Sharpe was expected to be ready for the start of training camp next month and appears to be firmly on that timetable after getting cleared. He was seen putting up some shots on Friday.

The Trail Blazers selected Sharpe with the seventh pick in the NBA draft. He did not play at Kentucky last season but was viewed as a lottery pick given his skill set. The team views him as a key addition, and he should have the opportunity to play next season.

The injury was certainly a tough break for Sharpe as summer league was his first opportunity to play competitive basketball in over a year. The team played it safe with his injury and he now looks to be fully ready for his rookie season.
