Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Chet Holmgren, the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA draft this past June, is undergoing further evaluation to determine the severity of a foot injury, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Initial exams revealed “potential” torn ligaments in Holmgren’s right foot, Charania reported. The 7-foot, 190-pound prospect is undergoing further evaluation to determine a timetable for his return from the injury.

Holmgren appeared to suffer the injury two minutes into a pro-am game hosted by retired NBA player Jamal Crawford at Seattle Pacific University on Saturday. Holmgren was defending Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James in transition before landing awkwardly and limping to halfcourt. He did not return.

The game was discontinued before halftime due to slippery conditions on the court.

Holmgren averaged 14 points (on 48/42/94 shooting splits), 8.4 rebounds, 2.8 blocks, 2.4 assists and 1.6 steals in 26.2 minutes over five summer league games for the Thunder in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas.
