Spurs’ Lonnie Walker IV To Undergo Knee Surgery

Spurs first-round pick Lonnie Walker IV will undergo surgery on Monday to repair a right medial meniscus tear, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets. The injury was suffered during the fourth quarter of San Antonio’s preseason victory over the Pistons on Friday.

The early timeframe for Walker’s recovery is 6-to-8 weeks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN tweets. Walker was expected to play a key bench role at small forward behind Rudy Gay. His injury, at least in the short run, opens up playing time for veterans  Dante Cunningham and Quincy Pondexter.

Walker was the 18th overall pick in the draft.

    He is/was my pick for this year’s Donovan Mitchell and a sneaky pick for ROY. Guess that is out the door.

    This will be something to watch with him, as he has had knee issues a couple of times in the past
