Lakers' Profit out 4-6 months after Achilles surgery
The procedure was performed by Dr. Dan Kharrazi of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic, and the Lakers said recovery time for Profit's injury is expected to be approximately four to six months, meaning it's possible he could return late in the season.
Profit was injured in the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's 112-90 victory over the Dallas Mavericks. He scored eight points in 15 minutes before being injured.
