Jennings Undergoes Successful Surgery
Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond announced today that guard Brandon Jennings (6-1, 169) had successful surgery this afternoon to repair a fracture of the fifth metatarsal of his left foot. The surgery was performed at the Orthopaedic Hospital of Wisconsin by Bucks Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Michael Gordon along with foot and ankle specialist Dr. Eric Malicky. Jennings is expected to miss four to six weeks of action and will be re-evaluated throughout his recovery.
Jennings, 21, had started all 25 of the Bucks games prior to his injury and led the club with 17.9 points, 5.5 assists and 47 3-pointers. Jennings had started in 107 consecutive games (114 including the postseason) prior to the injury. The second-year pro was a member of the 2009-10 All-Rookie First Team and won the NBA's Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month award in October/November, December, January and March. He tallied 55 points in his seventh professional game (November 14, 2009 against Golden State) and recorded his first career triple-double against Charlotte on October 30, 2010 - becoming the second player in NBA history (along with Elgin Baylor) to score 50-plus points and record a triple-double in their first 100 NBA games.
