April 12, 2022

Rookie Thunder shooting guard Vit Krejci addressed a left knee injury with an arthroscopic procedure, per Joe Mussatto of the Oklahoman (Twitter link). Oklahoma City expects Krejci to return to the floor by the beginning of the 2022/23 NBA season, Mussatto tweets.

Mussatto points to the surgery as the probable reason behind Krejci’s missing the team’s exit interviews today.

After signing a multiyear contract ahead of the 2021/22 NBA season, the 6’8″ 21-year-old appeared in 30 games during his first NBA season, averaging 6.2 PPG, 3.4 RPG and 1.9 APG. He posted shooting splits of .407/.327/.864.
