Lakers forward Trevor Ariza out after ankle surgery

Lakers forward Trevor Ariza had an arthroscopic debridement procedure performed on his right ankle today.

Team doctors will reevaluate Ariza in approximately eight weeks.

Per, “Ariza returned to L.A. for a second stint with the franchise after winning a championship alongside Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol in 2009, signing a veterans minimum contract after being recruited by Russell Westbrook to join shortly after Westbrook was traded from Washington.”
