Forward of “Zalgiris” Kaunas Tyler Cavanaugh did not avoid back surgery. The man from Žalgiris, who felt back pain in mid-December and tried conservative treatment methods, finally needed the intervention of surgeons.

Without basketball, T. Cavanaugh will spend at least 3 months.

T. Cavanaugh’s operation was performed by Med. m. Dr. neurosurgeon Bronius Špakauskas.

“We want to thank doctor B. Špakauskas for the successful operation. Although T. Cavanaugh and I tried conservative methods of treatment, in the end it became clear that surgery could not be avoided. In 8 days, the basketball player will start rehabilitation. If it goes according to plan, we can expect Tyler to return to the field at the end of April”, said Vytautas Kailius, the doctor of Zalgiris.

T. Cavanaugh managed to play 14 games in this EuroLeague season, during which he scored 5.9 points and rebounded 4.3 balls.

In the “Betsafe-LKL” championship, the American collected 7.5 points and 3.3 rebounds.
