Lonnie Walker IV out 6-8 weeks with torn meniscus

He will undergo surgery on Monday.

NBA: San Antonio Spurs-Media Day Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Spurs rookie Lonnie Walker IV has been declared out for 6-8 weeks after sustaining a knee injury during Friday night’s preseason game against the Pistons. He will undergo surgery on Monday for a torn right meniscus.

Walker made his preseason debut in the fourth quarter against the Pistons and scored 6 points on 3-3 shooting in before limping off the court after a jump shot. This is certainly not the way the Spurs most promising draft pick since at least 2011 wanted to start his NBA career, but hopefully he has a speedy recovery and can return to the court in the allotted time frame. Get well soon, Lonnie!
