After breaking a bone in his right forearm on January 26th Enes was given a timeline of 4-8 weeks. With this came a 4 week check up that was conducted recently and revealed Enes has healed faster than expected. He participated in his first practice since his injury and managed to shoot the ball, play defense and make a couple plays. Initial reports are that he is listed as “Uncertain” for Friday’s game but may play pending he has no pain after further practice.

Head coach Donovan said: “The injury is at is a lot different than Victor (Oladipo), where he was obviously having a lot of wrist problems,Enes doesn’t have a problem shooting or catching or any of those kind of things. Right now it’s been great to see him recover like he has, and certainly moving in the right direction.”

Teammates also mentioned that they do not expect Enes to miss a beat since he kept in great shape while rehabbing his forearm.
