The injuries are all in the lower part of his right leg and combined, these issues could cause Sengun to miss the rest of the 2023-24 NBA season (only about a month left).

However, according to multiple media reports, none of Sengun's injuries will require surgery, which will allow the 21-year-old to be fully ready for the 2024-25 season and beyond.

In a message posted on Instagram in Turkish (his native language), here is what Sengun said to his fans, translated into English:

See what Caitlin Clark said to her Iowa fans as they cheered her on for the last time! See what Caitlin Clark said to her Iowa fans as they cheered her on for the last time!

Thank you to everyone who called me and supported me after my injury. Thank God there is no problem with my knee. I will have a little treatment for my ankle sprain.

Feeling your support gave me strength. I will start working to come back stronger than before as soon as possible, thank you everyone.

In 63 games this season, Sengun averaged 21.1 points (53.7%), 9.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists. Selected 16th overall in the 2021 first round, the Turkish prospect led Houston in scoring and rebounding and his production was crucial for the Rockets (29-35), who entered Tuesday with four wins in five games.

Sengun is under contract for at least one more season (2024-25), after which he can become a restricted free agent. He will be eligible for a contract extension with the Rockets this summer.
