Noah Vonleh out 6-8 weeks after sports hernia surgery

The Charlotte Hornets received some bad news on Tuesday, when the news came out that rookie Noah Vonleh will miss 6 to 8 weeks after undergoing sports hernia surgery:

Noah Vonleh reportedly suffered the injury during a recent workout. It isn’t a devastating injury, but being out for 6-8 weeks before your rookie season in the NBA starts isn’t a good thing.

The start of the NBA season is 8 weeks away, so Vonleh might miss the first few games the Hornets have to start the season. The injury puts more of the load on Cody Zeller and Marvin Williams.

As much as the Hornets would love to have Noah Vonleh ready to start the season, the last thing they need to do is rush him on his recovery. They need to take the time to make sure he is healing 100% before putting him into the game.

Best case scenario is that Vonleh heals before the season starts, which is likely. He will only miss a few games at the most.

This upcoming Charlotte Hornet season could be very special. The signing of Lance Stephenson should take Charlotte to the next level, and there is a lot of potential in rookies Noah Vonleh and P.J. Hairston. Let’s hope that this injury won’t affect Noah Vonleh too much.
