Injured Torn right rotator cuff Open link
Zeller underwent surgery on Wednesday to repair a tendon in his right shoulder, as well as to remove a bone spur and scar tissue. His recovery time is expected to be approximately three months, which is significantly longer than the four-to-six weeks that he estimated when discussing the surgical option last week. Zeller is still expected to make a full recovery in time for the start of training camp. He missed 19 of the final 20 games of the season due to ongoing soreness in that shoulder, and the more recent and specific diagnosis explains why he was so slow to recover.

Marvin Williams and Jason Maxiell will see additional run the rest of the way with Zeller unavailable.
