The Charlotte Hornets said former Badger big man Frank Kaminsky will undergo a minor procedure on Wednesday to fix a small pocket of air between his lung and chest wall.
The recovery time is six weeks and will keep Kaminsky out of the Orlando Pro Summer League.
The Hornets say Kaminsky could have played with the condition, but today’s procedure will help relieve some discomfort.
Kaminsky averaged 7.5 points and 4.1 rebounds in 21.1 minutes per game as a rookie last season. He appeared in 81 games with three starts.
