The Milwaukee Bucks selected forward Damien Inglis of French Guiana in the second round of the NBA Draft on Thursday, but the 6-foot-8 teenager won’t be able to participate in the Las Vegas Summer League.
According to Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Inglis is out with a broken foot suffered during a workout. That’s one reason Inglis—projected as a late first-round pick in many mock drafts—fell to the top of the second round.
Gardner’s report said the injury should be healed in time for Inglis to start training camp in the fall.
While many thought Inglis was a draft-and-stash pick, general manager John Hammond said Thursday that Inglis will be with the Bucks to start the 2014-15 season.
That will give Milwaukee three teenagers to start the season. Neither Inglis nor first-round pick Jabari Parker will turn 20 until next May, while last year’s first-round pick, Giannis Antetokounmpo, won’t be 20 until December.
