Pelicans Announce Jrue Holiday Had Successful Surgery Today
New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday underwent successful surgery today to repair a core muscle injury, the team announced in a press release.
Dr. William Meyers performed the surgery in Philadelphia.
Meyers is the surgeon many professional athletes go to to treat a core injury or a sports hernia.
The estimated recovery timetable for Holiday to return to basketball activities is 6 weeks.
The news of Holiday's injury is somewhat surprising considering head coach Alvin Gentry claimed weeks ago that Holiday's injury was not that serious.
