Former Utah Runnin' Ute Delon Wright has been bitten hard by the injury bug once again.

The third-year guard for the Toronto Raptors is expected to miss the next month due to a right shoulder injury he suffered last Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 6-foot-5, 190-pound Wright suffered the injury in the second quarter of a game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The injury is significant on two fronts for Wright. First, it's the second time in just over a year that he has hurt his right shoulder, as he did so during Summer League in 2016 and missed the first three-and-a-half months of last season.

Second, Wright had started to come into his own this season as Kyle Lowry's primary backup. In 14 games, he had averaged 7.6 points, 2.6 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 20.9 minutes per contest.
