This is not the news you want to hear as a bubble NBA Draft pick.
Former Syracuse standout Scoop Jardine broke his foot Friday during a workout with the Utah Jazz. Jardine will undergo surgery today, just two days before the NBA Draft.
Jardine’s rehab will set him back six to eight weeks. The injury will keep him out of the NBA’s summer league, which could severely hurt his chances of making an NBA roster in the coming season.
Scoop played with pride and passion in his time at Syracuse, aiding in some of the best seasons in school history. Scoop came back from a knee injury during his time at Syracuse, so it is more than possible for him to overcome this foot injury as well. We wish nothing but the best for Scoop and hope he has a speedy recovery so he can continue his quest to achieve his dreams.
