Malcolm Miller is going to hate Las Vegas Summer League at this rate. A year after missing the event after badly spraining his ankle in a practice, Miller once again finds himself on the sidelines for the Toronto Raptors.
Miller hit the floor hard trying to contest a shot in transition in the third quarter of Toronto’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday. He immediately knew something was wrong, yelling an obscenity and coming up with a limp right wrist. After a quick evaluation, it was determined that Miller has a dislocated right shoulder.
Obviously, he’s done for the day, and this could spell an end to his Summer League.
UPDATE: Miller is done for Summer League.
A restricted free agent, Miller struggled a bit in three games so far. The Raptors, including head coach Nick Nurse, remain high on him, but this is an ill-timed injury and an even worse-timed mini-slump given he’s in the hunt for a home for 2018-19 right now. Still, it would seem he’s done enough to warrant a training camp look, from the Raptors or someone else, assuming his shoulder injury isn’t too serious.
