Charlotte Hornets rookie forward Noah Vonleh underwent successful sports hernia surgery on Sept. 2. He is expected to sit out six to eight weeks.

Charlotte Hornets rookie forward Noah Vonleh underwent successful sports hernia surgery on Sept. 2.

According to a short press release on the Hornets' official website, Vonleh is expected to sit out around six to eight weeks:

"Charlotte Hornets forward Noah Vonleh underwent successful surgery today to repair a sports hernia suffered in a recent workout. The surgery was performed in Charlotte by Dr. B. Todd Heniford. Vonleh is expected to miss approximately 6-8 weeks.

"The ninth overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, Vonleh was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year and Third Team All-Big Ten in 2013-14 at Indiana University after averaging 11.3 points, a Big Ten-high 9.0 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 26.5 minutes per game."

The Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell also reported on Vonleh's surgery:

"Charlotte Hornets rookie Noah Vonleh had successful surgery to treat a sports hernia and will miss the next six to eight weeks.

"Based on that timeline, Vonleh won't participate in training camp at the start of next month in Asheville and will likely also miss some preseason exhibitions.

"Vonleh, a power forward who turned pro after one season at Indiana, was the ninth overall pick in the 2014 draft, a selection the Hornets received from the Detroit Pistons. 

"He averaged 11.3 points and nine rebounds a game last season with the Hoosiers. 

"While Vonleh showed lots of potential in Las Vegas Summer League, Hornets coach Steve Clifford has said Vonleh and shooting guard P.J. Hairston will have relatively limited roles as rookies.

"The Hornets have Cody Zeller and Marvin Williams available at power forward, although Zeller will likely also play some center this coming season." 

In another team development, Bonnell's colleague at The Charlotte Observer, Steve Harrison, wrote an update saying the city of Charlotte will spend approximately $33.5 million in maintenance fees for the Hornets' Time Warner Cable Arena:

"The city of Charlotte is prepared to spend $27.5 million in capital improvements for Time Warner Cable Arena, as well as 10 years' worth of annual payments of $600,000 for ongoing maintenance. 

"The Charlotte Hornets and the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority asked the city earlier this year for nearly $48 million in arena improvements, many of which the city and the team said are part of a 2003 operating agreement that requires the 9-year-old building to be among the National Basketball Association's most modern.

"City staff told the City Council on Monday night the money would come from two hospitality taxes: a hotel/motel tax and a car rental tax that are already in place. Council members are scheduled to vote on the deal Sept. 8. 

"The city's proposal calls for the team to receive money for restaurant renovations, bathroom improvements, new lighting, visitor locker room upgrades, moving the ticket office and scoreboard improvements. The team would also replace a number of 'tabletop' seats in the lower bowl with traditional seats, which would increase capacity by about 600 seats.

"The proposal comes a year after the City Council agreed to give the Carolina Panthers $87.5 million, most of it for improvements to Bank of America Stadium. In exchange, the team agreed to a firm six-year commitment to stay in Charlotte. 

"The city's relationship with the Hornets is different. 

"The city paid for and owns the $265 million arena. The CRVA helps manage the 'back of the house' operations such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning as well as plumbing. The Hornets are responsible for booking events other than basketball in the building.

"After the Hornets left the city for New Orleans in 2002, the city decided to create an arena agreement that made it very difficult for an NBA team to leave. In return, the new basketball team got a favorable lease agreement.

 

"The agreement has steep financial penalties if the team leaves Charlotte before the lease is up. The city also agreed, in its contact with the Hornets, to keep the building among the NBA's most modern.

"Time Warner Cable Arena is the third-newest arena in the NBA. Since it opened, new arenas have opened in Brooklyn, N.Y. and Orlando, Fla."
