Second-round draft-and-stash pick DeAndre Daniels had a small bone fragment in his shooting elbow.

In preparation for his upcoming stint with the Perth Wildcats, it was discovered that Daniels had a small bone fragment in his right elbow. Daniels successfully underwent surgery and is expected to return in four-to-six weeks. The Wildcats sent the update in a press release.

There were two treatment options available for the injury — maintenance or surgery. Daniels could have possibly played had the former been chosen, but opting for the surgery route appears to be the sounder long-term option.
