Former Marquete Golden Eagle, Utah Jazz and now Portland Trailblazer, Wesley Mathews, recently had surgery on his elbow to clear up some debris.
Portland Trail Blazers guard Wesley Matthews underwent a successful arthroscopic debridement of his left elbow today. The procedure was performed by Dr. Ken Yamaguchi at Washington University Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Mo.
Matthews’ recovery time is expected to be 3-4 weeks.
This minor surgery shouldn’t hold him back. Matthews should be back on the court within a month which means he’ll be fine and ready to go for training camp.
During his tenure thus far with the Blazers, the fourth-year NBA vet started in 69 games for Portland last year while averaging approximately 15 points per game, making roughly 40 percent from three-point range all while providing top-notch defense. His current contract has him locked up for at least two more season with the team.
