Noah Vonleh out 3-4 weeks after successful procedure on thigh
Noah Vonleh could not seem to get a break so far early in his career.
The 6’10” power forward out Indiana University was a highly touted prospect in 2014, which led the Charlotte Hornets to drafting him 8th overall in the draft. But circumstances have prevented him to get the needed opportunity to develop his game.
Since being traded to the Portland Trail Blazers last year, Vonleh’s game hasn’t shown any improvement, but the same goes for his minutes.
Portland Trail Blazers forward Noah Vonleh underwent a successful procedure to remove a bone fragment from his right thigh musculature today.
Dr. Evan Ellis performed the procedure at Rebound in Vancouver, Wash., and the expected recovery time is 3-4 weeks.
It’s a necessary procedure that also doesn’t pose any serious concerns for his physical well-being. Preseason games kick off early in October, so a setback is the last thing that the young player needs right now.
