On Tuesday, the Memphis Grizzlies announced that Ben McLemore would miss 12 weeks due to non-displaced bone in his right foot. He underwent surgery to repair the injury Tuesday afternoon. McLemore hasn’t suffered with any significant injuries in his NBA career, playing every game in his first two seasons, only missing thirty-five games the past two years with miscellaneous injuries.

If everything goes well in the surgery and there is hopefully no side effects from the procedure, McLemore will be back on the court in early November.
The injury isn’t too much of a big hit as McLemore would only miss a few weeks to begin the season, but the Grizzlies need all the wins they can get since they could be on the outskirts of a Western Conference playoff spot.
Memphis signed former 7th overall pick out of Kansas to a 2yr/$10.7 million contract, after he spent the first four years of his career with the Sacramento Kings.
