Charlotte Hornets’ rookie point guard LaMelo Ball underwent surgery to address a fracture in his right wrist, the NBA franchise said in a statement on Tuesday.
The 19-year-old was operated on by Dr. Michelle Carlson in a New York hospital.
“Ball’s wrist will be immobilized and he will be reevaluated in four weeks,” the Hornets added.
The American player was injured during a game against the Los Angeles Clippers on March 20.
The no. 3 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, Ball averaged 15.9 points, 6.1 assists and 5.9 rebounds per game this season.
