Utah’s Clark undergoes ankle surgery

Salt Lake City, UT (Sports Network) – Utah Jazz forward/center Keon Clark
underwent successful ankle surgery and is expected to be out six to eight
weeks, and possibly nine to 12.

During the surgery, doctors removed scar tissue, a bone spur in the ankle and
smoothed down other bone spur spots. There was also some arthritis in the
ankle joint.

Clark is expected to have the cast and stitches removed on December 9 and will
then be placed in another cast for up to two weeks.

The 28-year-old Clark has played in just two games this season and is
averaging 2.0 points and 3.5 rebounds per outing.
