Adelaide 36ers guard Anthony Drmic will undergo surgery next week to relieve him of plantar fascia pain in both his feet.
The injury is not expected to interfere with the sharpshooter’s preparation for the 2019-20 NBL season, with Drmic confident he’ll be ready to go when the 36ers return for pre-season training in August.
“The pain in my feet has been gradually getting worse over the last eight months, so I’ve decided to get the injury sorted now in the off season so I’m ready to go for the pre-season,” Drmic said.
Drmic will have surgery on his right foot next Thursday and then on his left foot in two weeks’ time.
The injury means Drmic can no longer play with the Southern Tigers in the Premier League during the off season. He averaged 27.5 points and 7.3 rebounds in eight games with the Tigers.
