Mavericks’ first round pick Shane Larkin suffers broken ankle, out 2-3 months

LAS VEGAS — Just as we were discussing top draft picks who will miss Summer League due to injury, we get word of another one to add to that list.

From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

Any injury is obviously tough, but this might’ve been Larkin’s only chance to get some court time in considering all of the additions the Mavericks made at the guard spot this offseason.

Dallas signed point guards Jose Calderon and Devin Harris, and then went out and got a dynamic scorer at the position in Monta Ellis.

Larkin was selected by Dallas with the 18th overall pick in this year’s draft. The team’s other two rookies, Gal Mekel and Ricky Ledo, will be a part of the Summer League roster.

The Mavericks will open Summer League play in Las Vegas on Saturday against the Sacramento Kings.
