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.
Also, he confirms he plans to play in Summer League. At least the Utah one. Says he wants to test the new hair out while playing lol https://t.co/KSuJ06kta3
