Trail Blazers big man Meyers Leonard will miss the team's second consecutive Summer League game due to a shoulder strain, co-head coach David Vanterpool said during the team's media availability Sunday morning.

Leonard injured his shoulder last week. 

The team will see how Leonard's shoulder feels during Monday's practice to determine is he'll be ready to go.

"He'll be back before you know it," Vanterpool said.

Leonard appeared in 40 games last season where he averaged 2.5 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.

In the Trail Blazers opening game in Las Vegas, Joel Freeland played 27 minutes, tallying 9 points on 4 of 7 shooting and 4 rebounds. Craig Brackins, a 6'10" big man out of Poland, played 10 minutes, scoring 2 points and pulling down 2 rebounds.

The Trail Blazers tip-off in Thomas & Mack Arena at 5:30pm, which can be seen on CSN with postgame coverage to follow.
