Report: Davis Bertans tears ACL, will undergo surgery


As Project Spurs reported recently, Partizan forward Davis Bertans suffered a right knee injury in a game versus Crvena Zvezda in the Serbian League Finals. It was a non-contact injury to his right knee and he was on the court in considerable pain.

An MRI was done and according to, Bertans did sustain a tear his ACL in his right knee. He is expected to undergo surgery this week.

"It is a difficult situation", said Partizan head coach Dusko Vujosevic. "Davis took it pretty hard, but I am sure he will come out of this even stronger. Our club is behind him." 

Bertans will likely miss the Eurobasket tournament this summer for Latvia in Slovenia and could could miss the entire 2013-14 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Regular Season. This also ends any chance he could have played for the San Antonio Spurs at this summer's NBA Summer League.

Bertans was drafted by the Pacers in the 2011 NBA draft but was traded to the San Antonio Spurs as part of the deal that sent Kawhi Leonard to the Spurs in exchange for George Hill.
