Pelicans swingman Josh Hart sidelined with torn thumb ligament
NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that guard Josh Hart suffered a torn UCL in his right thumb during last night’s game against the Orlando Magic.
Hart underwent an MRI today at Ochsner Health, which confirmed the injury diagnosis.
Additional updates regarding Hart’s treatment plan and timetable for return will be announced at a later date.
Pelicans' HC Stan Van Gundy on Josh Hart's injury:
"I mean it's long-term. Could he get back by the end of the year? Yeah.
But he's not going to be back in two weeks…It's a significant amount of time. He's going to miss the vast majority of what's left in the season."
