Thunder’s Chet Holmgren (foot) has follow-up surgery

Date:


Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Chet Holmgren underwent surgery Tuesday to remove hardware implanted in his right foot.

Holmgren had surgery on Aug. 30 to treat a season-ending Lisfranc injury that he sustained over the summer.

Tuesday’s procedure was performed by Dr. David Porter of Forte Sports Medicine and Orthopedics in Carmel, Ind., with Thunder medical personnel on hand. Porter was the surgeon on the initial operation.

The team said Holmgren’s rehabilitation remains on target and that he is expected to return for the 2023-24 season.

Holmgren, 20, was injured as he defended LeBron James on a fast break during a CrawsOver Pro-Am game in Seattle in August.

The 7-footer was the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA draft in June. He averaged 14.0 points and 8.4 rebounds in five games for the Thunder at the Las Vegas Summer League.

In his lone season at Gonzaga, Holmgren averaged 14.1 points, 9.9 rebounds, 3.7 blocks and 1.9 assists. The Bulldogs entered the NCAA Tournament as the No. 1 overall seed but lost in a regional semifinal to Arkansas.
