Pistons' Ben Gordon has ankle surgery

The Detroit Pistons announced Wednesday that guard Ben Gordon had successful surgery to remove bone spurs and loose bodies from his left ankle. The
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.
