Earlier Wednesday at the team’s shootaround in Phoenix, coach Lloyd Pierce had said that Huerter avoided tearing anything in the shoulder, which is a good sign for the second-year player.
“The MRI, I don’t think there was any signs of a tear,” Pierce said. “I know he’s seeing our team doctors today. But that’s all I got is there was no tear. Of what, I don’t know. His shoulder, I don't know what the terms of it (are), but that was the good of the news. There is some damage, and we’re getting some images done with our team doctors in Atlanta.”
Pierce’s first impression was that Huerter had avoided the “worst-case scenario.”
