Dzanan Musa hurts shoulder, no word on timetable

Long Island Nets

The Nets on Tuesday announced that Dzanan Musa, their first round pick in last June’s Draft, has suffered a left shoulder sublaxation.

Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Dzanan Musa was diagnosed today with a left shoulder subluxation after sustaining the injury during Sunday’s Long Island Nets game. Musa will begin rehabilitation immediately, and updates regarding his status will be issued as appropriate.

Musa has played in 16 games for Brooklyn’s NBA G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets, while on assignment this season, recording averages of a team-high 20.1 points with 7.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.1 steals in 32.4 minutes per contest. He’s also appeared in seven games for Brooklyn this season, averaging 1.7 points in 3.7 minutes per game.

Sublaxation is described as a temporary, partial separation of the shoulder. Most online descriptions of the injury suggest that rehab will take several weeks with the patient likely to wear a shoulder sling.

This is the second injury the 6’9” swingman has suffered this season. Just prior to the season, Musa returned to Bosnia to play in the FIBA Europe World Cup qualifiers and hurt his ankle, which sidelined him for a couple of weeks.

Two other Nets, Caris LeVert (leg) and Treveon Graham (hamstring) remain out, but Graham, who practiced with Long Island over the weekend, is likely back soon, perhaps this week.
