Arlington, VA, August 2, 2017 –NBA player Gerald Henderson, Jr. is evaluating surgical options for his left hip. The following is a statement from Henderson regarding details around this decision.
“Despite receiving genuine interest from several NBA teams, I have made the decision to continue to evaluate surgical options on my left hip. I have been playing through severe pain that has made it difficult to play to the best of my ability. Now the pain has started to impact my everyday life off the court. My family, my agent and I are working closely with my medical team to give me all of the information I will need to make the best decision, personally and professionally. I am as competitive as they come and want to play. I will fully commit myself to getting healthy. I am thankful for the many opportunities I’ve had and I look forward to returning to playing in the NBA.”
Henderson was the 12th overall selection by Charlotte in the 2009 NBA Draft. The Duke graduate most recently spent the 2016-17 season playing for his hometown Philadelphia 76ers.
