Rodney McGruder (tibia) underwent successful surgery on Tuesday and he’ll begin rehab in about a week.
There’s no official timetable for his return to the court but he’ll be out for a lengthy period of time. It’s possible the surgery will keep him out for the entirety of the season. Josh Richardson, Dion Waiters and Tyler Johnson are all going to be slight beneficiaries as a result but they did all have superior fantasy value to McGruder anyway.
