Jon Leuer undergoes knee surgery

Pistons forward/center Jon Leuer underwent surgery on Wednesday, August 8 in New York, to help fix a right medial meniscus injury that occurred during an offseason workout earlier this week.

Leuer will begin the rehabilitation process immediately and his return to full basketball activity will be updated prior to the start of training camp.

A backup for the vast majority of NBA games he’s played, Leuer career began with the Bucks in 2011. He then played for the Cavs, then spent a few seasons with the Grizzlies, then one with the Suns, and this will be his third season on the Pistons. He only played eight games last season, but in 2016-17 he played 75 and averaged a career-high 10.2 points per game, along with 5.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 25.9 minutes per outing.
