Washington Wizards star Alan Anderson was suffering from a small bony fragment in his left ankle. Anderson underwent a surgery for the first time last May to get rid of it. But he again started feeling pain on his left ankle caused by irritation of the fragment.
Finally, Anderson underwent another surgery on his left ankle on Tuesday to remove the surplus stuff. Wizards management announced the news of the latest surgery on Tuesday.
Dr. David Porter at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, performed the surgical procedure.
Anderson is scheduled to start his rehab process soon, but a time-frame hasn’t been announced yet by the Wizards’ management.
