Scoot Henderson suffers shoulder injury in Summer League debut

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Kevin O’Connor @KevinOConnorNBA
Amen Thompson and Scoot Henderson were impressive in their debuts. Sucks they both went out injured. But both were so comfortable playmaking, beautiful downhill attacks. Scoot’s shot looked good. Loved Amen’s fight on defense switching on bigger players. PM

Rookie Scoot Henderson injured his right shoulder and will not return against Houston during @NBASummerLeague action today in Las Vegas.
A shoulder injury in the first quarter of the first game last summer ended Shaedon Sharpe’s summer session early. – 8:42 PM

While most NBA rookies are still negotiating their shoe deals — Scoot Henderson debuted at Summer League in his 1st PE release of @PumaHoops’ All-Pro NITRO.
The colorway takes inspiration from his Marietta, Georgia hometown & features his ‘Overly Determined to Dominate’ mantra. PM

Summer Blazers 53, Rockets 47 at half. Amen Thompson looks terrific. Jabari Smith Jr. struggling so far. Blazers Shaedon Sharpe and Scoot Henderson could make it much easier to deal Damian Lillard. It’s summer league, yes, but there’s a lot there. – 8:05 PM

Was nice of Michael Jordan to try to make the Blazers feel better about passing on him in 1984 by letting Scoot Henderson fall to them. – 7:33 PM

More on this storyline

Tim MacMahon: No. 3 overall pick Scoot Henderson had 15 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists in 21 minutes before a right shoulder injury in his summer league opener. The Trail Blazers say he won’t return to the game. -via Twitter @espn_macmahon / July 7, 2023
At 46 years old and nearly 20 years removed from winning an NBA championship, Portland Trail Blazers coach Chauncey Billups believes most young players have very little knowledge of his respected playing career. Occasionally, however, there are exceptions like heralded Blazers draft pick Scoot Henderson, as “Mr. Big Shot” learned during a recent dinner. “I asked him, honestly, like, ‘How does it feel to be Chauncey Billups?’ ” Henderson told Andscape. “That’s crazy. I’m sitting in front of an NBA Finals MVP. It’s crazy.” Said Billups to Andscape: “He knows more than most of the guys his age about what I have done.” -via Andscape / July 7, 2023
Henderson, who is expected to make his NBA summer league debut Friday against the Houston Rockets (7 p.m. ET, ESPN) believes it was God’s destiny that he ended up in Portland to be groomed by Billups. And Billups is equally excited to help mold the willing-to-listen-and-learn teenager into a star. “He is chasing greatness, and when he gets there, he is going to find something else to chase,” said Billups, who is in his third season as Portland’s coach. “That is already who he is. That is his mojo. That is his superpower.” -via Andscape / July 7, 2023
