MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Hasheem Thabeet has canceled a pre-draft
workout with the Grizzlies because of a shoulder injury.
The Grizzlies didn't immediately say whether they would reschedule Sunday's session for later in the week.
Some draft projections have the 7-foot-3 center out of Connecticut going to Memphis with the second pick in Thursday's NBA draft. Thabeet has already had two meetings with team officials.
Thabeet averaged 13.6 points, 10.8 rebounds and 4.2 blocks (second in the nation) for the Huskies last season, when he was co-Big East player of the year.
A number of projections have him going to the Grizzlies with the No. 2 pick, others have Memphis taking Spanish point guard Ricky Rubio. The Los Angeles Clippers are expected to take Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin at No. 1.
