Pistons' Ben Gordon has ankle surgery
procedure was performed at St. Joesph’s Mercy Hospital in Pontiac by Dr. Art Manoli.
Gordon’s left ankle will be placed in a cast for three weeks and rehabilitation will begin immediately following removal of the cast. He is expected to make a full recovery prior to the start of training camp in October.
Gordon played a career-low 62 games as he battled the ankle injury and a groin injury. He averaged a career-low 13.8 points and the career 40-percent 3-point shooter shot a career-low 32.1 percent on 3-pointers. It was the first time in his career he shot below 40 percent.
The surgery is hopefully a step in the right direction for Gordon, who wants to put last season behind him.
