Sacramento Kings forward Carl Landry underwent successful surgery Tuesday morning to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist, the team announced Tuesday. The procedure was performed by Dr. Michelle Carlson at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
Landry experienced wrist soreness during the 2014-15 season, missing five games as a result (Jan. 16 – Jan. 23). An initial evaluation at that time by Dr. Carlson indicated surgery was not necessary. When pain in the wrist persisted during the offseason, Landry underwent an MRI early this week which revealed that a procedure was required to repair the injury.
He will begin rehabilitation immediately and is expected to be out approximately four to five months.
