PLAYERS: Enes Kanter
TEAMS: Utah Jazz
Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter has been suffering from a dislocated left shoulder. To reduce the likelihood of the 20-year-old reinjuring the shoulder, Kanter underwent season-ending surgery yesterday to repair the dislocation, according to Bill Oram of The Salt Lake Tribune.While it’s never good to have a player sidelined for the remainder of a season, Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey considers the operation as good news. Following the procedure, Kanter will be much less likely to reinjure his shoulder."Frankly, this is good news," Lindsey said. "The probability as given to us that something would happen to the shoulder is no greater than a shoulder that’s never been injured before."Rather than have the center attempt rehab, Utah opted straight for surgery. Sometimes these ailments can be healed and further prevented from rehab, which avoids a player being sidelined for a significant time due to surgery. However, rehab can prove ineffective, and as a result the player sometimes ultimately has to go under the knife anyway.In Kanter’s absence, the Jazz will enter the playoffs using a frontcourt of Derrick Favors, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap. There is currently no timetable set for Kanter’s return.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");
