It's just a bit odd that this wasn't addressed sooner. You's think they would've tried a wrist stabilizing cast of some sort.
Williams has been wearing a wrist cast which allows him prehensile abilities.......that is, the ability to grab and hold. If he has surgery, it is most likely going to be arthroscopic. Although the protective period for wrist tendon surgery is ~4-6 weeks, he will probably be able to return to play with a protective cast within ~1-2 weeks or so depending on what was performed. Wrist tendon surgery in itself creates a very minimal period of pain, maybe 24-48 hours at best, which is easily controlled with typical pain medication. He will likely play with at least a protective splint if not a cast during games for the rest of the season.
BTW, Mario is scheduled to see a wrist specialist today.
