The Celtics announced on late Monday that Abdel Nader underwent a right wrist arthroscopy and ulnar osteotomy last week, to correct lingering issues that resulted from a fracture he suffered in high school.

Nader is scheduled to return to basketball activities in approximately 2-3 months, and is expected to be at full strength for the start of next season. It was unclear if Nader was going to be a part of the Celtics summer league team before the procedure, but he will be sidelined either way for the contests in early July.

BSJ Analysis: This surgery may help to explain what has to be considered a relatively disappointing rookie campaign by the 24-year-old last season.
