Milwaukee Bucks guard Grayson Allen underwent a successful minimal procedure in his left ring finger issues, team general manager Jon Horst revealed on Friday during a pre-draft media availability.
Added by Horst, the said complication has been bothering Allen throughout the 2021-2022 season and the surgery has no lasting effects.
“A lot of times, guys do maintenance-type stuff, routine stuff in the offseason to kind of get ready,” Horst said, via Associated Press. “It was good for him to kind of approach it in the offseason. It’ll be fine. There’s no kind of lasting effects.”
He is still expected to fully recover this offseason and be prepared for the Bucks’ training camp.
Arrived last year in a trade by the Memphis Grizzlies, Allen had a serviceable first season donning the Milwaukee jersey, averaging career-high in points (11.1), boards (3.7), and three-point shooting percentage (40.9%) per 27.3 minutes.
With the guidance of superstar Giannis Antetokonmpo, the Bucks are widely expected as one of the title favorites for the upcoming season. They fell short of their title defense against the Boston Celtics in the second-round matchup of the 2022 postseason.
