新奥尔良 —— 杰里米·索肯于周三接受了左脚踝修复手术。













Spurs’ Jeremy Sochan recovering after ankle surgery

The Spurs’ guard Devin Vassell, left, and Jeremy Sochan were both ruled out for the season this week. Sochan underwent surgery on his left ankle on Wednesday.

NEW ORLEANS — Jeremy Sochan underwent surgery Wednesday to repair his left ankle.

The second-year Spurs forward posted a photo of himself in his hospital gown recuperating after the procedure.

“Surgery went well!!” Sochan wrote.

Ruled out at halftime of last Friday night’s Spurs win over New York in overtime, the Baylor alum was diagnosed with an impingement. After consultation with outside experts, the Spurs medical team determined that arthroscopic surgery was needed, the team said in a press release Monday announcing Sochan and guard Devin Vassell would be out for the remainder of the season.

Vassell was ruled out after an MRI revealed a stress reaction to the third metatarsal head in his right foot. The last game for the team’s second-leading scorer was also against the Knicks.

“I’m glad he got it done now,” said Spurs center Zach Collins, who has experience with ankle surgeries, said of Sochan. “Letting it linger would only make it worse. This way he also has time to recover and be ready for Olympic qualifying this summer.”

Sochan has a commitment to play for the Polish national team at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament July 2-7 in Spain.

Osman out after ankle injury

Forward Cedi Osman will miss Friday night’s game against the Pelicans after spraining his right ankle in the first half of the Spurs’ 110-105 loss at Denver on Tuesday.

Osman had started the last two games in place of Vassell.

The injury-depleted Spurs are hopeful sixth man Keldon Johnson will return against New Orleans after missing two games with a sprained left foot.

Johnson participated in the team’s 90-minute practice Thursday at Tulane. He will test the foot at shootaround Friday morning and then again during warmups.

Rookie star Victor Wembanyama is experiencing wear-and-tear issues, but he wants to continue playing through the end of the season. The Spurs have six more games before the season ends after an April 14 home game against Detroit.
