Philadelphia 76ers forward Elton Brand dislocated his right shoulder in his team's 93-88 over the Milwaukee Bucks.
An MRI was taken following the game, but the result was yet to be revealed.
"It would be a big blow to our team if he was out," 76ers coach Tony DiLeo told reporters, in just his second game since replacing the fired Maurice Cheeks.
Brand, the team's prized free agent acquisition in the offseason when he signed a five-year deal worth $80 million, recorded just four points and six rebounds before exiting the game in the third quarter.
For his career, Brand is a 20.1 ppg scorer and has an accuracy mark of 50.3 percent.
