The Athletic said on the 23rd (Korea Standard Time) that Stephen Adams of the Memphis Grizzlies will undergo surgery on the posterior cruciate ligament.
Memphis has emerged as a powerhouse in the Western Conference by being the second seed for the second consecutive year. However, it was important to endure this period because ace Zamorant could not play early in the season due to suspension.
But there was another defector. The main center Adams underwent cruciate ligament surgery and was decided to be out of the season before the opening.
Adams is a big man with an average of 8.6 points and 11.5 rebounds last season and has double-double 15 times. He is a player who has considerable influence on the inside and can save the handler through a hard screen. 경마
Adams, who failed to make the playoffs due to a knee injury during last season, chose to rehabilitate instead of surgery, but the progress was not so good. He recently played in a pre-season game, but eventually ended up on the operating table.
It is not clear when Brandon Clarke, who left Memphis due to a ruptured Achilles tendon at the end of last season, will return. On top of that, even Adams fell out, putting the Big Man rotation on alert.
