Source – Lakers PG Gabe Vincent to undergo knee surgery

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Lakers point guard Gabe Vincent will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his ailing left knee, a source familiar with Vincent’s plans confirmed Monday to ESPN, with an expected recovery period of six to eight weeks before he can return to play. . .

Vincent, 27, signed a three-year, $33 million contract with Los Angeles during the offseason, replacing Dennis Schroder in the backcourt after Schroder signed a free agent contract with the Toronto Raptors.

Vincent’s knee limited him to just five games this season, and he averaged just 5.4 points on 37.5 percent shooting (11.8 percent from 3) and 3.0 assists in 25.4 minutes. Vincent was a key contributor to the Miami Heat’s run to the NBA Finals last season, when he averaged 12.7 points and 3.5 assists during the 2023 playoffs while shooting 37, 8% out of 3.

He was out from October 30 to December 20 due to knee swelling, and he had the knee drained and opted for platelet-rich plasma therapy on the knee in hopes of avoiding surgery. surgical. Vincent returned for Los Angeles’ 124-108 loss to the Chicago Bulls last week and had three points and three assists in 14 minutes before being placed back on the injury report when the knee swelled again.

The procedure on Vincent’s knee could take place as early as Tuesday and is considered a “clean-up,” the source close to Vincent’s plans told ESPN.

The Athletic first reported that Vincent would undergo surgery.
