Taylor Hendricks, Brice Sensabaugh Out For Jazz Summer League Debut

Jul 3, 2023, 1:30 PM | Updated: Jul 12, 2023, 2:16 pm

SALT LAKE CITY – Taylor Hendricks and Brice Sensabaugh have been ruled out for the Utah Jazz Salt Lake City Summer League opener on Monday.

Neither first round pick has been available during the team’s three summer league practices.

The team announced their absence Monday morning.

Hendricks suffered a hamstring strain during the pre-draft process and though he visited Utah and met with team officials, he never went through a full workout with the Jazz.

Sensabaugh suffered his knee injury late in Ohio State’s conference tournament run and never visited Utah during the pre-draft period.

Hendricks was the Jazz’s ninth overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, while Sensbaugh was taken with the 28th pick.

Keyonte George, the Jazz’s 16th overall pick is available to face the Oklahoma Thunder.

Second-year wing Johnny Juzang is also out against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night with an ankle injury.

Thunder Boast Impressive Summer League Roster

While the Jazz will be shorthanded in their Summer League debut, the Thunder are featuring one of the most talented young rosters in the NBA.

Last season’s number two overall pick Chet Holmgren is expected to make his return to Summer League after missing all of last season with a foot injury.

Rookie of the Year runner-up Jalen Williams will also suit up for Oklahoma City while in Utah.

Thunder 2022 lottery pick Ousmane Dieng will also suit up, as will rookie Keyontae Johnson, and former Jazzman Jared Butler, who earned a two-way contract with Oklahoma City last season.
