Will Barton underwent successful surgery to repair core and hip muscle injuries this morning and his status will be re-evaluated in six weeks.
This is definitely a tough blow for owners who invested a middle-round pick for Will the Thrill. We wouldn’t recommend dropping him since he has solidified himself as the starting small forward in Denver but we wouldn’t blame you either if you were trying to move him for immediate production. The timetable puts his return somewhere in the beginning of December while Torrey Craig, Juan Hernangomez and especially Trey Lyles will absorb his minutes.
