Jason Maxiell's season is over. The Detroit Pistons' forward underwent season-ending surgery to repair a detached retina. He had been suffering from blurred vision says the release on NBA.com, but the team and Maxiell did not think much of it. He had tried eye drops, but when that didn't work, Maxiell went to a specialist.
The specialist diagnosed the condition. The surgery took place on Sunday, and Maxiell's season came to a close. He will be ready for the start of training camp, but he may have to look for a new team.
Maxiell will be a free agent after this season. He has spent his entire career with the Pistons, but there is no guarantee he returns. This season, Maxiell averaged 6.9 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. In his career, he averaged 6.1 points and 4.4 rebounds per game. The Pistons had a rough season this year, so they will be re-evaluating their roster during the summer. Maxiell's position will be one they have to consider.
