Malcolm Brogdon Out At Least Two Weeks With Elbow Tendinitis

Trail Blazers combo guard Malcolm Brogdon underwent treatment in his right elbow for tendinitis, Portland has announced (via Twitter).

The reigning Sixth Man of the Year is set to have the joint reevaluated in two weeks. That doesn’t necessarily mean he will actually back on the hardwood in two weeks, only that the club’s medical staff will take stock of his recovery process at that point.

The Trail Blazers acquired Brogdon, center Robert Williams III and two first-round future draft picks from the Celtics for Jrue Holiday prior to the season. The 31-year-old has served as a veteran leader on a rebuilding young Blazers squad this season, and will be eligible for an extension with the club this summer before earning $22.5MM in the final year of his current deal.

Through just 39 healthy contests this season, the 6’4″ guard is averaging 15.7 points per game on .440/.412/.819 shooting splits. He has also handed out 5.5 assists and grabbed 3.8 rebounds per contest.
