The procedure was performed by Dr. Drew Dossett in Dallas, TX.  Dudley missed four games last season due to a sore lower back in addition to playing through pain caused by the injury. 

“Although I’m disappointed that I won’t be on the floor with my new teammates for the start of training camp, I’m confident that having this surgery now will allow me to perform at my best and contribute throughout the season,” said Dudley.  “I appreciate the patience and support of the organization and I can assure my teammates and the fans that I will work extremely hard to be on the floor as soon as possible.”
