After suffering a shoulder injury over the weekend in a preseason game, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will likely miss the upcoming NBA season.

A needed surgery for the injury will sideline him for six months, making a regular season debut seem unpromising.

Per Yahoo! Sports:

Kidd-Gilchrist is expected to miss six months with the injury, which wouldn’t allow for a possible return until the final weeks of the season in April. It leaves little hope that Kidd-Gilchrist can return to the lineup this season.

 

Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a separated right shoulder in Saturday’s preseason victory over Orlando, and an MRI on Monday in Charlotte revealed the need for surgery.
