NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Pelicans said second-round draft choice E.J. Liddell has had surgery to repair torn knee ligaments.
The injury to the 6-foot-6 forward from Ohio State occurred July 11 during a Summer League game against the Atlanta Hawks in Las Vegas.
The Pelicans said the procedure performed Monday was a right ACL reconstruction and that Liddell remains out indefinitely.
Liddell averaged 19.4 points and 7.9 rebounds with the Buckeyes last season. He was drafted 41st overall by New Orleans.
