The biggest individual honor for an elite high school basketball player is to be selected for the McDonald's All-American Game. For area players Wayne Blackshear, Anthony Davis and Ariel Massengale, that dream is being played out in front of a hometown crowd.

While Perspectives-MSA's Davis and Bolingbrook's Massengale will continue to go through the practices leading up to Wednesdays game at the United Center, Blackshear will be out for the remainder of the festivities and the game as he suffered a dislocated shoulder during Monday mornings practice session at Attack Athletics.

"I don't even really remember what happened," Blackshear said. "I was coming off of a screen and I got bumped the wrong way and I felt a pop in my shoulder."

The Morgan Park star was still present for the Powerade Jam Fest on Monday night at Chicago State, dressed in his game-issued warmups with a sling on his left arm.

Blackshear was scheduled to compete in the dunk contest but watched the action from the sidelines. He also said there is no time frame on how long he will be sidelined.

"I went to the hospital as soon as it happened," Blackshear said. "My sports doctor was there and he said it was a dislocated shoulder and that I should sit out."

Massengale and Davis, meanwhile, each competed in the three-point shootout but didnt make the cut for the final round.

Connecticut signee Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis (Anaheim, CA) and Kentucky recruit Kyle Wiltjer (Jesuit, OR) won the three-point shootouts while Oklahoma State commit LeBryan Nash (Dallas, TX) took home the championship in the dunk contest.

Syracuse commit Michael Carter-Williams (South Hamilton, MA) and USC recruit Ariya Crook-Williams (Los Angeles, CA) won the skills competition.
