Jazz C Kanter dislocates left shoulder vs. Suns
Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter left the court in obvious pain
against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night with what team
officials said was a dislocated left shoulder.
An MRI is scheduled for Thursday morning.
Kanter was biting hard into his mouthpiece, supporting his left
arm and stopped courtside as if he wanted to try to pop the joint
back into place. Head trainer Gary Briggs led him to the locker
room shortly thereafter.
The injury occurred while the 6-foot-11, 248-pound Kanter was
diving for a loose ball with 10:23 left in the half. He collided
with Suns center Hamed Haddadi, who is listed at 7-2, 265
Kanter, a second-year pro, is averaging 7.3 points and 4.4
rebounds for Utah while playing with the second unit.
