News: Vonleh had surgery Tuesday to repair sports hernia and will miss six-to-eight weeks, the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports.
Impact: He's expected to miss all of training camp and most of the preseason as a result of the surgery, which likely means he'll have a hard time playing any kind of major role for the Hornets early in the season. There's no denying Vonleh's physical tools and well-rounded skill set, but he will take time to develop and should be an afterthought on draft day in most standard leagues. The Hornets have Marvin Williams and Cody Zeller ahead of Vonleh on the depth chart, leaving few minutes available even when he's healthy.
