According to the media ESPN announced on the morning of the 11th (hereinafter Korean time), Wembanyama will miss the rest of the San Antonio Spurs summer league schedule.
Wembanyama, who had a rather disappointing debut in the first game of the summer league, appeared in the second game of the summer league held on the 10th, with the appearance that people expected.

“I’m going to have a great time over the next two to three months and the team will change my life,” said Wembanyama, who showed great performance with touch in the midrange, footwork in the paint, finishing skills, rim protection, and even perimeter defense. I will change,” he said, adding that he would focus on taking care of his body for the rest of the offseason.
In this way, Wembanyama’s offseason game ended, but there were players who promoted the next season of the NBA while conquering the summer league earlier.
■ Jabari Smith Jr.: Houston Rockets
Jabari Smith Jr., who was named third overall by Houston last year, had a rather disappointing season with less than expected performance. Therefore, he saw it as an opportunity in the second summer league, even though it was not mandatory.
Smith Jr., who decided to participate in the summer league, pledged, “My rookie days were neither perfect nor great, so why don’t I go out here and set records?”
In the game against Portland, he scored 29 points in the second half alone, including a buzzer-beater 3-pointer, and won the victory. He then scored 38 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists on a field goal percentage of 52% (13/25) and free throw percentage 90% (9/10) to beat the Detroit Pistons and graduate early from the summer league.
Smith Jr., who showed confidence in his soft shot touch, post technique to create turnaround space, long shot distance that can throw deep threes, close-out strategy, and break through that gives irregularities in speed, if he can maintain his appearance against Detroit , will be able to make a big leap next to newly joined Fred VanVleet.
■ Jaylen Williams: Oklahoma City Thunder
Jaylen Williams, who finished second in the Rookie of the Year voting last season with a surprise performance, went to the California Classic Summer League to show how he has grown.
Williams played the core of Oklahoma City’s offense and defense with 21 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 block in 22 minutes in the summer league opener against the Utah Jazz. After an aggressive breakthrough, Williams, who boasted a stop and floater, a scoop layup from various angles, and a rhythmic 3-point shot, expressed confidence, saying, “Please check the areas I have improved.”
Williams gave the spotlight to Chet Holmgren, a big man who regained his health, and Tre Man, a third-year guard, but the moment he was on the court, he boasted a different level of performance and showed off his extraordinary presence. As such, he will be able to serve as an important piece for Oklahoma City, who are dreaming of making the playoffs soon.
■ Keegan Murray: Sacramento Kings
Keegan Murray, who helped Sacramento reach the playoffs for the first time in 17 years last season, expressed his intention to play in the summer league this season.
In two summer league games, Murray, who showed off almost every skill, including tomahawk dunks, pull-up 3-pointers, mid-range pull-ups after receiving a screen, and floaters, made 26 free throws.
Murray, who scored 29 points against the Golden State Warriors and bombed with 41 points against the Miami Heat, scored 70 points in 62 minutes and boasted an amazing 72.3% field goal success rate. And after those two games, Sacramento decided that Murray had nothing more to prove in the summer league.
Murray, who graduated early from the summer league, said, “Last season, I was just a catch-and-shoot or three-point shooter,” and “I wanted to be a person who can receive the basket when needed,” revealing what he focused on in the offseason.
In addition, LA Lakers’ Max Christie appeared in the summer league with a stronger physique compared to last season. He played in 4 games of the California Classic Summer League and the 2K24 Summer League, averaging 18.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4 assists, 48.9% field goal success rate, 60% 3-point success rate (9/15), and 95.7% free throw success rate (23 successful), receiving passing marks from the coaches. received.
