Enes Kanter Separates Shoulder Again in Game 3 vs. Nuggets

Portland’s center played tremendously, but also in pain.

NBA: Playoffs-Denver Nuggets at Portland Trail Blazers Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Denver Nuggets tonight in a historic, four-overtime thriller to take a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven playoffs series, but starting center Enes Kanter separated his shoulder again in the process. Kanter carried the injury into the series from Round 1 against the Oklahoma City Thunder, but played through it. The shoulder took damage again in the first overtime of Game 3.

Despite the injury, Kanter played 56 minutes tonight, contributing 18 points and 15 rebounds to Portland’s cause.
