The “pro-ams need to be banned” overreaction is crazy. Basketball players are gonna play basketball in the offseason, one way or another. Injuries happen. Chet Holmgren could just as easily have gotten hurt in an empty gym doing the Mikan Drill. (And that’s not a knock on Chet.) pic.twitter.com/bLfmHr8THy4:26 AM

SGA has 21 points at the end of the 3rd quarter.
He’s 3-6 from 3 and drilled one from the logo.
Looks like an All Star leading the Canadian team.
And all I keep thinking is how much more space he was going to have this season because of Chet Holmgren. – 12:09 AM

So perhaps not surprising given Chet Holmgren injury, word is Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will be shut down after game vs. Argentina & will not be available vs. Panama on Monday. As well, Nickeil Alexander-Walker will miss Panama game as he’s getting his wisdom teeth removed. – 9:42 PM

With Chet Holmgren due to miss his rookie season due to a broken foot suffered in a pro-am game, it will be worth monitoring how, um, enthusiastic OKC are about likes of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Lu Dort playing for Canada (not that Dort is playing right now). Never simple. – 5:52 PM

Brian Geltzeiler @BGeltzNBA
As long as Holmgren makes a full recovery, Presti/OKC brass aren’t necessarily devastated over this injury. It’s another year to get a high draft position and Chet was going to help them win more games than they wanted to. – 3:26 PM
Chris Sheridan @sheridanhoops
The Chet Holmgren news is horrible. But the calls to prohibit NBA players from playing in those types of games is misplaced. Basketball players play ball year round, sometimes on playgrounds, sometimes in arenas. Injuries happen. Let’s hope the kid makes a full recovery. – 3:15 PM
Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
Reaction to Holmgren injury shouldn’t be to end participation in these pro-ams. Guys play all summer. High intensity pickup games. Chet’s injury is unfortunate, but it could have happened anywhere. – 3:07 PM

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Sam Presti on Chet Holmgren “he wants to be really good, he cares a lot. The thing I’m really impressed with is that he isn’t an outside in guy, genuinely he loves basketball, he loves the team, he is highly intelligent…he is mature…he has never experienced an injury.” – 11:01 AM

Chet Holmgren had an Exhibit 5 (other activities) and the Seattle Crawsover Pro Am was on the list of sanctioned events by the NBA. – 10:55 AM

Sam Presti “there are a lot of guys that have missed their first year, and have had great careers.” Said they will get through Holmgren missing his entire first year. – 10:49 AM

Chet Holmgren was my #1 ranked prospect in the 2022 NBA Draft and still believe he was the right pick.
The talent and superstar upside is enormous with Chet.

I know the Chet Holmgren injury has folks questioning the importance of Pro-Am events, and that’s valid, but I hope it doesn’t cause other pros to hesitate in the future. It’s so huge for kids without local NBA teams to see the stars in person. – 6:26 PM

Beyond the injury itself, the crappy part of Chet Holmgren getting injured is that many are already screaming about “damn pro-am!”

More on this storyline

Eddie Johnson: Let me stop this players should not play in Pro-Ams and should be careful until the season starts because Chet Holmgren was injured. Message to the Waterboys, and couch potatoes! You play basketball because you love it and it’s the only way to improve. Robots not allowed! -via Twitter @Jumpshot8 / August 26, 2022
Like everyone affiliated with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Aleksej Pokusevski was shocked by the news that big man Chet Holmgren, the team’s No. 2 pick in the 2022 Draft, will miss the upcoming season with a ligament injury. He’s hopeful that his new teammate will come back strong once he recovers. “I’m really sorry, it’s really bad news for us,” Pokusevski said to Mozzart Sport. “But, he’s [Holmgren] a young guy, a real worker and I think he’ll successfully recover from everything and show why he was the No. 2 pick in the Draft.” -via EuroHoops.net / August 26, 2022
