Lakers News: Ryan Kelly Six Weeks From Basketball Activities

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

According to the Lakers’ official twitter account, 2013 second-round draft pick forward, Ryan Kelly, is at least six weeks away from running and jumping after his offseason foot surgery.

After meeting with a foot specialist and undergoing a CT scan, it was determined that Kelly is further from his return than we previously had expected. Despite all reports saying that he would not play in the summer league, Kelly was listed on the official roster that was released today. This report only confirms that Kelly will most certainly be inactive for the entire duration of the summer league circuit.

Kelly had surgery in early April of 2013 to repair a fractured metatarsal that he suffered during the end of his senior season at Duke.

Classified as a stretch 4 who can shoot the three, the 6’11″ Kelly is expected to garner a rotation spot this upcoming season in D’Antoni’s up-tempo, floor-spacing offense. During his final season at Duke, the forward averaged 12.9 points and 5.3 rebounds per game while shooting 42.2 percent from three-point range, a skill-set the Lakers lacked throughout all of last season.

    I have zero expectations for Kelly in his rookie season. He will be lucky to gather five minutes per game at this rate. Hopefully, in a long-term scenario, he could become our version of Ryan Anderson.

      I honestly think he has more of dirk in him than Ryan Anderson. Anderson is more of a spot up shooter while Kelly can not only spot up, but post up and also take you off the dribble. Remains to be seen if he can translate his true game to the NBA though. Then again he has a pure stroke and is 6’11 so he has that going for him haha.

        There is absolutely no chance he should be compared to Dirk. That’s like saying Nick Young is a lot like Kobe Bryant.
