Omar Calhoun had two off-season surgical procedures to address discomfort in both hips, a UConn spokesman confirmed.
Calhoun had surgery to address femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) on his left hip in March and his right hip in April. The surgery involves shaving bone to alleviate discomfort, and hopefully avoid future discomfort. Recovery time is three to four months, so Calhoun, who will be a sophomore next season, should be 100 percent by mid-August. If he was considering trying for Team USA this summer, this injury would eliminate that.
Calhoun averaged 11.3 points and 3.9 rebounds last season, playing at small forward in all but the last game. He was hampered by a wrist injury late in the season.
Word of Calhoun’s surgeries was first reported via twitter by Hearst Connecticut Newspapers.
