Possible lottery pick Huerter undergoes hand surgery

Possible NBA lottery selection Kevin Huerter underwent right hand surgery to repair torn ligaments, ESPN reported on Wednesday.

The Maryland product is expected to be sidelined two months.

The 6-foot-7 Huerter is projected as a sure first-round draft pick. His stock was rising during workouts last month with some prognosticators viewing him as having played his way into a possible lottery pick.

Huerter averaged 14.8 points and 3.4 assists last season as a sophomore for the Terrapins. He made a team-leading 73 3-pointers and his 138 career 3s ranks 12th in school history.

The NBA draft is June 21.
