Pistons’ Bagley has surgery on right hand

Pistons center Marvin Bagley III underwent successful surgery today to repair a fracture of the third and fourth metacarpals in his right hand, the team announced Thursday.

Bagley, 23, suffered the injury against Portland on January 2.

According to the team, Bagley will be reevaluated in approximately six weeks.

The fourth-year center was acquired by the Pistons last February and signed a three-year, $37.5 million contract with the team in the offseason.

Pistons return to action on Friday night against the Spurs.
