Early in the third quarter of the Hawks’ 125-121 win in Denver Tuesday, Kevin Huerter exited after being fouled by Nikola Jokic. According to the Hawks, Huerter was diagnosed with left shoulder pain. He did not return to the game.
Jokic appeared to bump Huerter’s left arm and Huerter immediately went down in pain, walking back to the locker room holding the arm.
At this time, it’s unclear how serious the shoulder injury is, or if Huerter will miss more playing time. The Hawks did not have any further update on Huerter after the game, but an update is likely coming Wednesday.
Huerter had 11 points (3-for-3 from 3-point range), three assists and four rebounds before getting injured.
