Phoenix Suns To Be Without Former World Champ After Knee Surgery

The Phoenix Suns have done a nice job filling in the roster around the edges, to surround Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Bradley Beal. Unfortunately, one of those pieces will be lost to the team for some time, as guard Damion Lee has undergone knee surgery, and there's currently no timeline for his return. 

The procedure was to repair his right meniscus.  

Lee injured the knee in an on-court workout days before the start of training camp. He signed a two-year deal this summer with the Suns after shooting a career-best 44.5% from three in his first year with in the desert last season. He averaged 8.2 points and 3.0 rebounds playing about 20 minutes per night in 74 games.

Lee won a championship ring as part of the 2022 Golden State Warriors. 

Phoenix is facing plenty of issues with their supporting cast this fall, as along with Lee, Ish Wainright remains out with a right calf strain while Drew Eubanks is listed as questionable with a left ankle sprain he suffered in the second half of Tuesday's preseason loss to the Denver Nuggets.
