Trail Blazers' Shaedon Sharpe expected to be ready for training camp




 

Portland Trail Blazers rookie Shaedon Sharpe will not require surgery for his left shoulder injury, the team announced. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

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

The Trail Blazers selected Sharpe with the seventh pick last month 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. He will now rehab the injury to ensure he is fully healthy and ready to go for the start of training camp in the fall.
