After more than three years away, Jimmer Fredette made his first appearance in an NBA game on Saturday night.
Fredette suited up for the Phoenix Suns in a 112-103 loss to the Sacramento Kings.
The former BYU guard played just four minutes in the second quarter and went scoreless while missing his only field goal attempt. On the plus side, he did collect two rebounds.
While it wasn’t the kind of return that Jimmer fans had hoped for, it was just great to see him back in the NBA and to not to have to get up well before dawn to see him play.
Up next for Fredette and the Suns is a trip to Utah to face off with the Utah Jazz on Monday night.
