SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz rookies Taylor Hendricks and Brice Sensabaugh missed the team’s first summer league practice on Thursday.
The two first round picks are still recovering from injuries that occurred in the past few months, but neither are considered serious.
Hendricks suffered a minor hamstring injury during the pre-draft process, while Sensabaugh suffered a knee injury during the conference tournament while playing for Ohio State.

Though both rookies missed Thursday’s practice, the injuries are considered day-to-day, and the two haven’t been ruled out for the Jazz Salt Lake City Summer League debut on Monday.
Keyonte George, the Jazz’s 16th overall pick, was not listed on the team’s injury report.
Neither Hendricks nor Sensabaugh worked out for the Jazz during the predraft process as a result of their injuries, though both conducted interviews with the team.
“I would love to play in summer league,” Hendricks said on draft night, “but we’re going to take it one day at a time.”
The Jazz will practice Friday and Saturday before Monday’s debut.
