The Blazers have texted over the following update on Blazers rookie Jeff Pendergraph, who recently injured his hip...
Jeff Pendergraph underwent successful surgery today to repair left hip impingement. He is expected to be sidelined 10-12 weeks.
Despite his injury and need for surgery, Pendergraph was formally signed by the Blazers yesterday. The tentative timeline reported above would put Pendergraph's return in late November/early December, forecasting a sooner-than-rumored return. Coincidentally, the NBA Developmental League begins play the last week of November so this could work out pretty well for everyone.
