Kanter was examined by the Utah Jazz medical staff and underwent a MRI test on his left shoulder on Thursday, which confirmed a dislocation of his left shoulder. Kanter did not travel with the team for Friday night’s game at Portland and will remain out indefinitely.
Kanter injured himself while dicing for a loose ball in the second quarter of Wednesday's win over Phoenix.
Now in his second NBA season, Kanter has appeared in 70 games (two starts) this season and is averaging 7.2 points and 4.3 rebounds in 15.4 minutes per game.
Kanter's injury means more playing time for Derrick Favors and most likely Jeremy Evans.
