Former Golden State Warriors guard Nico Mannion is slated for a full recovery after contracting a mysterious infection while overseas. The good news is that the 20-year-old is back on track after losing close to 20 pounds because of the virus.

This update comes via Anthony Slater of The Athletic:

“Former Warriors guard Nico Mannion contracted a severe intestinal infection overseas, but has made a full recovery under care of Italian specialists at Sant'Orsola Hospital in Bologna, per source. He’s regained 17 of the pounds lost due to infection and begun individual training.”

Mannion recently made headlines after news broke about the severe infection he had contracted. A photo of the ex-Warriors rookie made its rounds on social media and it was shockingly clear in the image that Mannion lost a concerning amount of weight due to the disease:

It's great to hear that Mannion is now on the road to recovery and that he's quickly been able to gain back all the weight that he lost. We wish him all the best.

Mannion parted ways with the Warriors this summer after the Dubs decided against renewing his contract for the 2021-22 campaign. He was not able to secure a deal with any other team in the NBA, which prompted him to try his luck overseas. Shortly after the free agency window closed, Mannion signed a two-year deal with Italian outfit Virtus Bologna. The former Arizona standout was born in Italy, so this is a homecoming move for him.

Mannion, a second-round pick for the Warriors, played 30 games last season, averaging 4.1 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 12.1 minutes per game.
