Detroit Pistons guard Cade Cunningham, the first overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, will miss the remainder of the season after he undergoes season-ending surgery on his left shin, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Cunningham has been out of action since November 9th, and has  consulted with multiple doctors in recent weeks. Cunningham decided with both the Pistons and his representatives at Excel Sports to undergo a procedure that’s expected to have him fully recovered ahead of training camp for the 2023-2024 season.

Cunningham took a month to see if rest and rehabilitation would allow for the shin to improve, but the decision was made on Monday to go forward with the surgery.

Cunningham averaged 19.9 points, 6.2 rebounds and 6 assists in 12 games this season for the Pistons.
