The offseason has been an injury-riddled one for some San Antonio Spurs foreign draftees including Davis Bertans, Livio Jean-Charles, and Adam Hanga. Back in mid-July, Hanga had underwent knee surgery to repair a torn meniscuses in his left knee that was expected to keep him on the sideline's for approximately 10 weeks before even playing his first game with his new team Saski Baskonia.
In early September, Hanga said his progress had been going well in his recovery from surgery. However, on Thursday, a medical examination revealed Hanga had developed a knee bone edema according to Baskonia's team site and he is now expected to miss at least two more months.
Adam Hanga will remain out about eight weeks due to a knee bone edema, detected yesterday. The forward for Baskonia returned from practice that is taking place in Vielha, to pass a new medical examination with Dr. Mikel Sanchez and it was found to have this unfortunate setback that will force him to be out for a period of about approximately two months.
On Friday, Hanga took to Twitter to address the injury where he says it will continue to keep him more motivated.
Having a hard time...but it'll just make me stronger & more dedicated. Thanks for all your support. Keep up the hard work. Vamos @Baskonia— Hanga Ádám (@HangaAdamOnline) September 27, 2013
A bone edema is a medical term used by doctor's to describe swelling in the bone according to MyFootShop.com.
The good thing is he is a young player and should bounce back quick. Also, this should not hinder any possibility on Adam coming to the NBA, In other words, this should not prevent him to ever join the Spurs.
