Mavs Rookie Shane Larkin Returns To Practice Following Ankle Surgery
The 18th overall pick of the draft has been out for nearly four months after breaking his ankle.
Of course we’re talking about Shane Larkin, the reigning ACC Player of the Year. The 5’11 point guard tragically broke his ankle during a Summer League practice in July.
After rigorous rehab, Larkin has finally made it back on the practice floor.

Larkin still has some work to do before we’ll see him in a live game, but he’s confident it’ll be sooner rather than later.
“I felt good out there,” he said. “I don’t have my quickness out there yet, but that will come in the next couple days or so. Hopefully in the next couple weeks – next week, week and a half – I’ll be able to play.”
After seeing what fellow rookie point guards have done thus far (Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo), I can’t wait to see what Larkin has to bring.
