Miami Freshman Lonnie Walker to Have Knee Surgery

Lonnie Walker Surgery

Lonnie Walker, the 6-foot-5 shooting guard from the University of Miami, has torn the meniscus in his right knee and will undergo surgery at UHealth Sports Medicine Institute later this week, per a release by the university.

“Lonnie suffered an injury in practice this morning,” head coach Jim Larrañaga said. “The timeframe for his return will be determined after the surgery.”

Walker, who played in both the McDonald’s All-American Game and the Jordan Brand Classic earlier this year, was projected by DraftExpress to be the No. 15 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

A timetable for Walker’s recovery will be determined after the surgery. Walker, who is considered to be Miami head coach Jim Larranaga’s most highly touted recruit in his six years at Miami, addressed his injury in a tweet Tuesday evening.
