Nets' Dariq Whitehead: Undergoes successful surgery
Whitehead underwent successful season-ending surgery on his left shin stress reaction Monday and is expected to need three months to recover, Evan Barnes of Newsday reports.
As expected, Whitehead will miss the remainder of the 2023-24 season due to the injury, but despite a third surgery in two years, the rookie is expected to be a full participant during the Nets' offseason development program this summer. The Duke product was one of the top high school prospects in 2022 but underwent a procedure on his right foot before his freshman season and needed another surgery following the campaign because the injury didn't heal properly. Injury concerns didn't prevent Brooklyn from using the 22nd overall pick in 2023 to draft Whitehead, and the 19-year-old could still have a bright future if he's able to stay on the court consistently....

Nets' Dariq Whitehead: Out for rest of season
Nets head coach Jacque Vaughn said Saturday that Whitehead will undergo season-ending surgery to address a stress reaction to his left shin, Erik Slater of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Whitehead was one of the top high school prospects in the 2022 signing class and the MVP of the McDonald's All-American Game, but his long-term outlook has been hindered since he began his college career at Duke in 2022-23. He underwent surgery on his right foot prior to the start of his freshman season, but after turning in solid but unspectacular numbers over his 28 games with Duke, he required another surgery in June after his foot didn't properly heal from the first procedure. Despite Whitehead's health concerns, the Nets still opted to select him with the 22nd overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, but he made just two appearances with Brooklyn and 17 in the G League before suffering another lower-body injury. With another major surgery on tap, the 19-year-old Whitehead might not be ready to play during the 2024 Las Vegas Summer League and could even face restrictions for the start of training camp in the fall....

The Nets announced Thursday that Whitehead is out indefinitely after he was diagnosed with a left shin stress reaction, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

The injury is a discouraging setback for Whitehead, whose NBA career had already gotten off to a delayed start after he underwent surgery on his right foot in June prior to being drafted. He has made just two appearances for the Nets this season with a total of 24 minutes played.... See More ... See Less

With two G League appearances under his belt, Whitehead appears to have reached the finish line in his recovery from the follow-up procedure he required on his right foot in June, shortly before the Nets selected him in the first round of the 2023 NBA Draft.
