The Charlotte Hornets announced Friday that shooting guard Gerald Henderson underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his right wrist to remove scar tissue, which limits a joint's range of motion.

Henderson's wrist will be immobilized for two weeks before beginning rehab, the Hornets said.

Injury problems in the past had fans questioning Henderson's durability, though the Hornets guard just came off his most healthy season in his career, having played 77 of 82 games. On the first year of a new contract, Henderson had a slight decrease in effectiveness offensively, but still had a major role on the team as a player with a pretty versatile skill set on offense and defense.
