The rookie was selected as the number two overall pick in June’s draft and was talked about as one of the most exciting young players in the league.
During his time in the Summer League, Holmgren was showing true greatness and people considered him a frontrunner for Rookie of the Year.
But then a Lisfranc injury to his right foot derailed all of that and now Holmgren is going to miss all of his first year in the league.

Even though he won’t be suiting up for the Thunder this season, Holmgren hasn’t lost focus.
He was spotted in the gym recently, wheeling up to the free throw line and putting up his practice shots.
This shows that Holmgren remains tuned in and dedicated to being the best player he can be.
It’s unfortunate that the Thunder won’t be able to see his skills for another year but fans should remain excited about this young superstar-in-the-making.
With Holmgren and Josh Giddey leading the way, along with several other up-and-coming players, the Thunder were looking really good right after the draft.
It was unlikely that they’d come close to the Finals but they were setting themselves up for a much better regular season.
However, Holmgren’s injury changes all of that and ensures that 2022-23 is going to be another rough year for the Thunder.
Thankfully, Holmgren is still doing all he can to keep his basketball ability strong.
That means that when he is able to take to the court again, he will be zoned in and ready to pick up where he left off.
