The Portland Trial Blazers' Gerald Henderson underwent a left hip debridement arthroscopy earlier today. The news was released via Twitter by the Blazers Communications Department.

For those unfamiliar with the objective of the procedure and the specifics of the rehabilitation process, CSNNW has you covered:

The Oregonian's Mike Tokito also notes that this is not the first time that Henderson has had surgery on his left hip. However, there is no indication that today's arthroscopy was at all related to his previous injury.

Portland brought in Henderson, along with power forward Noah Vonleh, in a trade with Charlotte that sent Nicolas Batum to the Hornets. Henderson posted averages of 12.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game in 80 contests during the 2014-15 season.
