Kenrich Williams out for remainder of the 2022-23 season with wrist injury
The Oklahoma City Thunder announced on Thursday that forward Kenrich Williams will undergo wrist surgery to repair a scapholunate ligament rupture and will miss the remainder of the 2022-23 season.
Williams suffered the left wrist injury against the Sacramento Kings this past Tuesday and was ruled out for Wednesday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers with a left wrist sprain.
The 28-year-old has played an important role for the Thunder’s early success this season as a veteran wing off the bench. Without Williams, OKC’s depth takes a huge hit.
In 53 games this season, Williams averaged eight points on 51.7% shooting, 4.9 rebounds and two assists. The Thunder (28-34) have 20 games remaining in their regular season.
