Thunder Center Steven Adams Out for Three Weeks with Injured Hand
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Thunder center Steven Adams underwent surgery Monday to repair a fractured bone in his right hand and will be out at least three weeks.
The team said Monday that the procedure was considered a success.
Adams was injured Sunday against the Los Angeles Clippers. He was fouled on the play, and stayed in the game to shoot the free throws. He shot both with his left hand, missing the first attempt. He made the second, drawing a roar from the crowd.
In 50 games this season, all starts, Adams is averaging 7.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks. He was recently selected to participate in the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge for a second consecutive season as part of the NBA's All-Star Weekend festivities.
