DeVonte "career backup or out of the league" Graham out for the remainder of the Summer League.

Sucks for the guy. He was playing really well for us and showed some nice potential. TBH I have never heard of condylar lesions so that can never be good especially when they attach the word indefinitely. 

Honestly, nothing surprises me with this team. Something always seems to happen. 

MJs damn gambling addiction. He lost some deal with the devil.

There isn't much on Injuries like this out there, but what is out there doesn't sound terribly promising.

Hopefully he makes a full recovery. If he's expected to be out for a lengthy period of time there are still some options for the 3PG role such as Larkin or Mack.

Sucks for him and us...did he already sign a contract with guaranteed $$?

Yes he's guaranteed somewhere in the neighborhood of 998K this season and 1.4M? the next. 

From what I understand about the injury, it's nothing ligament related so I don't think he misses the whole season. From what I understand about the injury is that it's similar to runner's knee. Something to do with the cartilage in the knee. My sister in law is a nurse and she said, depending on the severity, it could take a couple of weeks to recover, it could take a few months. Just depends. Fortunately, it's July. Hopefully, he can get back by training camp. The word indefinitely, makes things sound longer than they could be. I'm guessing we will get an actual timeline once our doctor's evaluate him.

From a roster standpoint, I don't think we should panic and sign another PG with our final roster spot because I think Graham will be back at some point. That being said, extra depth wouldn't hurt. We have another two way contract left to use so perhaps it makes sense to sign a PG on that to be emergency depth. I think, even if Graham misses the first month or two of the season, Batum, Monk and maybe even Lamb can help take on some extra ballhandling duties as needed.

Thanks? 

I mean, having a Yogi Ferrell or VanVleet type can be good.  Graham looked really good from what I saw.

Not a good comparison, good sir. Both of those guys can shoot, Graham did not shoot well at all.

Van Fleet shot 35% as a rookie.

I agree we need to pump the breaks on Devonte but the comparison to VanVleet is not a bad one by any stretch. That's more accurate than most comparisons you will get on this board.

I mean hell, VanVleet went undrafted. It's not like he's comparing Miles Bridges to LeBron James.

I would argue Miles Bridges athletic wise is close to LeBron. Other than that, no comparison. And I hope he becomes VanVleet, honestly.
