Possible lottery pick Cameron Payne fractures finger during pre-draft workout in Denver
Murray State guard Cameron Payne has been one of the fastest risers on draft boards around the league in recent weeks, with the conventional wisdom being that he’s a likely lottery pick who could possibly wind up in the top 10 of Thursday’s draft. Unfortunately, Payne suffered a setback on Monday during a workout in Denver, according to Jonathan Givony of Draft Express. Payne fractured the ring finger on his left (non-shooting) hand, and his agent tells Givony that the injury isn’t serious:
It sounds like this injury isn’t as bad as it could have been, and shouldn’t affect his draft stock that much if at all.
