Oklahoma City Thunder He will have to face the 2022/23 NBA season without his great summer addition. Chet HolmgrenNo. 2 selection in the last Draft, has been seriously injured and will not be able to play this new course.

This marks a complete change of plans for the Oklahoma State franchise. Although he was not expected to compete for the top spots in the Western Conference, the campaign was going to serve to lay the foundations for his future project around the figures of Holmgren, Josh Giddey and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

To “compensate” for the young player’s absence, the Thunder have applied to the NBA for a disabled player exception. so it has confirmed Shams Charania. The team would receive $4.95 million to cover Chet Holmgren’s absence.

A reconstruction that will last another year

Despite having good names on the roster already available, the reality is that the Oklahoma City Thunder still have a long way to go to re-establish themselves as one of the candidates for the ring in their Conference. With Holmgren the story could have been different when it comes to competing for the ‘Play-In’. But his injury and the large number of draft rounds that OKC still has does not force them to speed up the process.
