Possible NBA lottery selection Kevin Huerter underwent right hand surgery to repair torn ligaments, ESPN reported Wednesday.
The 6-foot-7 Maryland product is projected as a sure first-round draft pick. His stock was rising during workouts last month, with some prognosticators viewing him as having played his way into a possible lottery pick. He is expected to be sidelined two months.
Huerter averaged 14.8 points and 3.4 assists per game last season as a sophomore for the Terrapins. He made a team-leading 73 3-pointers, and his 138 career threes ranks 12th in school history.
