In the past few days, the news was coming out that the Oklahoma City Thunder were worried that number 2 overall pick Chet Holmgren had suffered a severe injury while playing in the Crawsover event last week. Today those fears came to life as it was revealed that Holmgren suffered a Lisfranc injury to his right foot and will miss the entire 2022-23 NBA season.
This is a huge blow for Holmgren and NBA fans. Holmgren is one of the most anticipated prospects of the last few years, with his 7-foot height and impressive skill for his size. However, one of the negatives about Holmgren coming out of college was his small frame and lack of physicality. And this is not a good start to getting rid of that narrative for Holmgren.
