Roddy Peters will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery on Dec. 21.
Peters, who originally dislocated his shoulder over the summer playing on the AAU circuit, will play five more games for the Suitland High (MD) Rams before undergoing the correcive procedure.
“Just thinking about all my family who never got to see me play, and also my friends,” Peters wrote of his decision to play through the injury. “I (never) want to stop playing basketball so I want to play until I can’t anymore.”
Peters is expected to be sidelined until June.
