Hornets Injury Update: Noah Vonleh has started on-court work

By on 9/26/2014 12:00:00 PM

The Charlotte Hornets approach the start of training camp coming off a  43-win season in 2013-2014. After finishing 11 games out in the Southeast Division, the Hornets look to improve an offense that ranked just 23rd in the NBA in scoring.  They will begin camp at less than full strength, as first round pick Noah Vonleh is recovering from a sports hernia. The good news is that he has started on-court work.

I reported on September 4 that Vonleh,  who was the ninth overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft out of Indiana, suffered a sports hernia.  He had successful surgery to repair the hernia, but was expected to be sidelined six to eight weeks.

Rick Bonnell, who covers the Hornets for the Hornets for the Charlotte Observer, tweeted the following update on Vonleh.
Vonleh, a 6' 9", 240 pound power forward, played only one season at Indiana. He averaged 11.3 points, 9.0 rebounds and and 1.4 blocked shots in 26.5 minutes per game. He shot 52.3 percent from the floor and 71.6 percent from the free throw line.
