Jalen Green To Undergo MRI On Hamstring, Likely Out For Summer League 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Aug 13, 2021 12:17 pm

Jalen Green will likely miss the rest of the Summer League with a sore right hamstring.


The Houston Rockets will have Green undergo an MRI as a precaution, but they don't believe there is a "significant concern" with the injury.


Green scored 61 points in 72 summer league minutes, shooting 19-of-37 from the floor and 10-of-19 from 3-point range.


The Rockets selected Green with the No. 2 pick.

This is the one concern I had with him. He is thinner than the ideal athelete. He doesn't have the natural frame of a successful athelete; it's definitely thinner, which can lead to more injuries.
