Oklahoma City Thunder player undergoes hand surgery, out three weeks
OKLAHOMA CITY – Even as the Oklahoma City Thunder decimated the Clippers on Sunday, injuries continued to plague the team.
Center Steven Adams appeared to injure his right hand or wrist late in the first half and was forced to leave the game.
Amazingly, he returned to shoot two free throws.
However, he used only his left hand.
On Monday, the Oklahoma City Thunder announced that Adams underwent successful surgery to repair a fracture in the fourth metacarpal of his right hand.
The procedure was performed in Oklahoma City.
Officials say Adams will be re-evaluated in three weeks, meaning he will probably miss every game until that point.
So far this season, Adams is averaging 7.4 points, 7 rebounds and 1.22 blocks in 24 minutes each game.
