OAKLAND Golden State Warriors guard Acie Law, who did not travel with the team on its current two-game road trip to Oklahoma City and Memphis, underwent an examination on his injured right wrist earlier today in San Francisco by hand specialist Dr. William Green, the team announced.
The examination indicated that Law, 26, is suffering from bone spurs in his right wrist and it is anticipated that he will undergo season-ending surgery. He will undergo another examination, performed by Dr. Michelle Carlson in New York, in the near future. An update will be provided following the second examination.
Acie has been fighting through an extremely sore and painful wrist for quite a period of time, said Warriors General Manager Larry Riley. The injury has become progressively worse in recent days and needed to be addressed. Acie has been a consummate professional as hes played through this injury and played well - in an effort to help his team. His commitment has not gone unnoticed and is greatly appreciated by our entire organization.Since signing with the Warriors as a free agent on December 9, Law has appeared in 40 games with Golden State, averaging 5.1 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 15.8 minutes per contest. Overall this season, including 11 games with the Memphis Grizzlies to begin the season, the fourth-year guard is averaging 4.2 points, 1.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 14.2 minutes over 51 games.
