Oklahoma City Thunder rookie forward Mitch McGary suffered a broken foot in Wednesday’s preseason game against the Denver Nuggets and is expected to be out 5-7 weeks. First reported by Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman, McGary suffered the injury late in the preseason game and was receiving treatment after the game. McGary finished the game with 14 points and 4 rebounds in an impressive debut.
The 21st pick out of Michigan has had a history of injuries. After surprising everyone with his performance in the 2nd half of his freshman season in college, McGary took a step back his sophomore year while recovering from back surgery. Since being drafted, though, he has been reportedly healthy and working out in Oklahoma City.
