Kira Lewis out for season with torn ACL

Kira Lewis injury

New Orleans Pelicans guard Kira Lewis is out for the remainder of the 2021 season with a knee injury. An MRI revealed that the knee injury is very serious, as Lewis suffered an ACL tear and a Grade 2 MCL sprain, which will require much surgery and rehab.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported the news via Twitter on Thursday afternoon.

 

This is Lewis’ second season in the NBA after being drafted in the 2020 NBA Draft in the first round out of Alabama. He scored 6.4 points, dished out 2.3 assists and grabbed 1.3 rebounds per game in his rookie season over 54 total games played.

This year, in 24 games and no starts, Lewis is averaging 5.9 points, 2.0 assists and 1.6 rebounds. His minutes per game are also down slightly, from 16.7 to 14.2. Stay tuned to TGH for more NBA news, including injury and COVID-19 absences.
