Luke Kennard leaves Cleveland game with shoulder injury

It didn’t look great for the Pistons’ second-year wing

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Detroit Pistons Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Luke Kennard was on fire, starting four of four from the field and finally being aggressive in Dwane Casey’s offense. It looked as if he’d finally anchored his spot in the rotation.

Then, he ran into a screen and left the floor in a lot of pain.

THEN, we got the official word from Woj himself:


I am not a doctor, but some quick googling says recovery time for a sprain is anywhere from six to eight weeks, with a shoulder separation requiring more recovery time.

We’ll obviously get you more information as we learn it, but this is truly unfortunate for the Pistons. Luke being in the rotation was going to do nothing but help the Pistons succeed.
