Brooklyn Nets leading scorer Cam Thomas, 22, is out for the foreseeable future.
Brooklyn released an updated injury report on Tuesday (Nov. 10).
According to the release, Thomas will not return to action for at least two weeks with a left ankle sprain.
Thomas sprained his ankle after stepping on an opponent’s foot during Brooklyn’s 100-93 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sept. 9. He went straight to the locker room and did not return to the game.
Brooklyn later announced that he had been diagnosed with an ankle sprain following an MRI, and shortly thereafter announced the length of his absence.레모나토토 도메인
Prior to the injury, Thomas had scored 14 points, the most of any Brooklyn player. This season, he has appeared in eight games (seven starts) and played 32.4 minutes per contest, averaging 26.9 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists on 47.9% shooting from the field, 32.1% from three-point range (6.6 attempts) and 85.1% from the free throw line (5.9 attempts).
Thomas, who averaged 10.6 ppg last season, has established himself as an indispensable player for Brooklyn this season with his scoring explosion.
In addition to Thomas, Brooklyn’s injury list includes Cam Johnson (left calf), Ben Simmons (hip), Dariq Whitehead (left foot), and Nicholas Claxton (ankle).
Of those, Johnson, Simmons and Whitehead have been upgraded to GTD (game-time decision), while Claxton remains out.
Despite the injury ward, Brooklyn is cruising along in seventh place in the Eastern Conference with four wins and four losses. However, the absence of Thomas, a guaranteed scorer, means a tough road ahead for Brooklyn. The Nets return to action on Nov. 11 when they host the Eastern Conference powerhouse Boston Celtics.
