Denver Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler is expected to miss the season, after undergoing surgery on his right hip, reports ESPN.
The 28-year-old suffered a labral tear during the preseason and has not played in any of Denver’s first seven regular-season games.
After the upcoming surgery, Wilson will go through a six-month rehab process, but is expected to make a full recovery.
“I’m incredibly disappointed,” Chandler said. “I put in so much work over the summer to make myself a better player. I dedicated my whole summer to self-improvement and all I had on my mind this offseason and preseason was ‘This was my year.’ I was going to help this team win. So this is very frustrating and heartbreaking to say the least.”
Chandler signed a four-year, $46 million contract extension with the Nuggets over the summer.
