Brandan Wright Injures Shoulder; No Timetable for Return

USA TODAY Sports

The Mavs' young PF/C, Brandan Wright, fractured his shoulder in practice and is week-to-week with no word on his return to play.

Per Mavericks PR, C/PF Brandan Wright has suffered a "small, non-displaced fracture to his left shoulder." The injury was apparently sustained during practice on October 8, and will not require surgery at this time.  There is no timetable set for return, but Wright's injury will be evaluated week-to-week. A little more context from ESPN Dallas' Tim MacMahon:

This is somewhat of a tough blow for a Mavericks team that will need all its key players to gel well in training camp and preseason to have a shot at competing in the tough Western Conference field. As has been mentioned a number of times on this site and others, Wright was certainly one of the bright spots of last season, and he appeared to be firmly in the Mavs' plans for this season, as he never seemed to be rumored to be going anywhere other than back to the Mavs as a free agent.

While the full extent of Wright's possible rehab timeline seems a little unclear, no surgery is certainly a positive, and obviously better the injury happen now than during the season.  We'll update you if and when more information is released.
