Warriors C Jones has surgery for torn pectoral
2:09 AM ET
Golden State shut down Milwaukee, flashing scary potential for a team that will be adding Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins very soon.
Golden State said Friday that Jones had the procedure Wednesday in Chicago, with Dr. Benjamin Domb performing it. Jones is expected to begin the rehab process in six weeks, with a timetable to be determined based on his progress.
Jones was injured Saturday in Detroit. A third-year pro out of Vanderbilt, he developed in the G League last season to emerge as the starter for the two-time defending NBA champions.
Jones, 23, started in 22 of his 24 games, averaging 5.4 points and 3.1 rebounds in 17.1 minutes. Golden State had an opening at center following the offseason departures of JaVale McGee, Zaza Pachulia and David West.
