Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jul 22, 2021 12:11 pm

Onyeka Okongwu underwent surgery on Wednesday in Los Angeles to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Dr. Neal ElAttrache of Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic performed the surgery.


Okongwu will now enter a period of rest and rehabilitation and is expected to make a full recovery in approximately six months.


Okongwu was the sixth overall pick by the Atlanta Hawks in 2020.
