Delon Wright undergoes arthroscopic shoulder stabilization, will miss a minimum of four months

Not to ruin your summer, but the Raptors' Delon Wright will be off the court for some time.

The Raptors have reported today that Delon Wright, point guard of the future, will miss a minimum of four months after undergoing "arthroscopic shoulder stabilization" (which is surgery, I assume) to fix a labral tear in his right shoulder. The news comes after Wright was injured in a Las Vegas Summer League game against the Minnesota Timberwolves back on July 16th.

As per the official press release, the X-rays of Wright's shoulder revealed no breaks or fractures, and his dislocated shoulder was popped back into place without issue. Unfortunately, further testing uncovered a torn labrum which, if I may editorialize here for a moment, sucks.

After ripping through the Summer League tournament for their first four games, it is extremely unfortunate that the lasting Raptors memories we have now of the competition are: the ridiculous kick-out from Tyus Jones and Wright missing a chunk of his young career after getting injured in that same gotdamn game.

Based on the four month timeline, we can presumably expect to see Wright back on the court in December, which, again, sucks.
