The Brooklyn Nets player Cam Thomas is expected to be sidelined for at least two weeks, the team confirmed. This comes after the guard suffered a left ankle sprain.
Thomas was injured during the third quarter of the Nets’ 100-93 win against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night when he stepped on the foot of Clippers forward P.J. Tucker. The 22-year-old underwent an MRI on Thursday that confirmed the extent of his injury.
A first-round pick (27th overall) in the 2021 NBA Draft, Thomas has shown constant improvement each season, proving to be this year’s breakout star for the Nets. Averaging 8.5 points as a rookie and then 10.6 points in 2022-23, Thomas is averaging a team-high 26.9 points over eight games (seven starts) this season.
