Clippers guard Jason Preston undergoes foot surgery

Clippers point guard Jason Preston underwent surgery today in Los Angeles to repair ligaments in his right foot.

He is expected to miss an extended period of time and there is no timetable for his return.

Per the team’s website, “the Clippers acquired the draft rights to Preston, the 33rd overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, from the Orlando Magic in exchange for the Detroit Pistons 2026 second-round selection and cash considerations.”

More from the Clippers’ site: “Preston averaged 15.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 7.3 assists (fifth highest in the country) during his junior season at Ohio University. The 6-foot-4 guard finished first on his team in points per game, minutes per game, assists per game and second in rebounds per game.”
