Detroit Pistons forward Jon Leuer underwent right knee surgery on Wednesday after sustaining an injury that occured during an offseason workout earlier this week, the team announced.
Leuer had successful surgery in New York to repair a right medial meniscus issue. A timetable for his return is uncertain.
The 29-year-old will begin the rehabilitation process immediately.
Leuer only played in eight games this past season due to a lingering foot injury. He averaged 5.4 points and 4.0 rebounds while shooting 41.7 percent from the field.
The former Wisconsin Badger has career averages of 6.7 points and 4.0 rebounds in 336 NBA games with the Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Memphis Grizzlies, Phoenix Suns and Pistons.
Leuer signed a four-year, $41 million deal with the Pistons in 2016.
