ATLANTA -- Four-star guard Jordan Goodwin sustained a left shoulder injury in a win on Saturday night against Team Final, and he reaggravated it on Sunday morning in a win against MOKAN Elite.

Goodwin posted 14 points, eight rebounds and five assists on Sunday, as the St. Louis Eagles took down big-time talents Michael Porter Jr. and Trae Young. Goodwin made big plays in a variety of ways, and he hounded Porter down the stretch at the defensive end to lock up the victory.

But late in the game, Goodwin tweaked his shoulder -- which was already in a brace. Goodwin told IlliniInquirer.com that his shoulder popped out of place on Saturday, and it painfully moved late in Sunday's contest.

Goodwin said he will be done for the rest of the weekend, and he missed Sunday night's game. But Goodwin didn't like his team lose from the bench, and he returned to action on Monday morning.

That is a good sign for the severity of his injury. The hope is that he doesn't cause further damage. He will be evaluated further when he returns home.

The Eagles are already playing without five-star center Jeremiah Tilmon due to his dislocated left shoulder. Tilmon sustained that injury on April 2 during the DICK'S Sporting Goods Nationals title game, and he had surgery to repair it last Thursday.
