Keyon Dooling Had Surgery Yesterday

Keyon Dooling

Yeah, I probably should have posted this yesterday, but I am still in this world of sick right now, and I didn’t get around to it.  Anyway, Keyon had surgery yesterday, and from the reports everything worked out ok:

Nets guard Keyon Dooling underwent arthroscopic surgery on his hip Monday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. Surgeons successfully removed loose bodies from Dooling’s right hip, which had bothered him throughout much of the second half of the season.

Despite the intermittent pain, the nine-year veteran had what he termed the best season of his career, averaging 9.7 points and 3.5 assists in 77 games. Dooling is expected to be ready in time for the start of the 2009-10 season, but his rehab will determine whether he’ll be on time for training camp.

Good news all around.  I had no idea he was battling this injury all year, and it is kind of amazing the type of production he had this year with the injury.   Here is hoping that he gets healthy and plays even better next year.

The only thing that scares me a little bit about this report is that he might miss some training camp.  Being that this is only going to be his second training camp with the team, I would want him to participate so he can get even more accustom to our system.
