Nuggets rookie Weems undergoes hernia surgery

Nuggets rookie guard Sonny Weems will spend the next two months trying to get his legs back under him after having sports hernia surgery on Thursday.

Weems, whose draft rights were acquired from Chicago on June 26, is expected to be ready for the start of training camp Sept. 30. Nuggets guard Chucky Atkins needed about eight weeks to return from the same surgery last season.

Weems, 22, averaged 9.2 points and three rebounds for Denver’s summer league team in Las Vegas.rockymountainnews (http://www.rockymountainnews.com/news/2008/jul/31/nuggets-rookie-weems-undergoes-hernia-surgery/)

I don't think this is too big a deal. After the Balkman and Jones pickups, it's not like he'd get any playing time anyways.

Ahhhh! Hearing "hernia" makes me cringe.

I hope Weems dunks on so many people next season, well that's if Karl gives him any minutes at all :rolleyes:
