Oklahoma City Thunder guard Luguentz Dort has entered the NBA’s concussion protocol.

The Thunder said he sustained a concussion during team practice on Sunday.


Under league policy, he now begins the mandated Return to Participation protocol, and no timetable is set for his return.

The Thunder signed Dort as an undrafted free agent before the 2019-20 season. Entering his fourth NBA campaign, he has career averages of 13.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists.


Dort, 23, set career highs in games (51), minutes (32.6 average), points (17.2) and rebounds (4.1) to go with 1.7 assists in the 2021-22 season.

The Thunder are scheduled to open the regular season on Oct. 19 at Minnesota.
