This is incredibly disappointing for Larkin, who had a great chance of making an impact at Las Vegas Summer League and proving his worth in the middle of a now very crowded guard rotation. Luckily though, even at three full months, that would put Larkin back on the floor two weeks before the regular season. Though he will probably start the season with the Texas Legends, Larkin has made a career out of proving himself.
Look for Gal Mekel and Josh Akognon to take over the main point guard duties for Dallas during summer league
