Rudy Fernandez will undergo a surgical procedure on Tuesday to relieve pressure on a nerve root in his back. The procedure is known as a microdiscectomy.

Fernandez has been suffering from a sciatic condition which is causing pain in his right leg.

Details of the recovery timetable will be released after the surgery is completed.

Well, we could probably trade for him now and it wouldn't cost us much.

Should we still pursue Rudy?

Is this a good time to make an offer and hope he comes back at full health?
