Duke senior men’s basketball forward Joey Baker underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair a left hip injury.

The surgical procedure was performed by Dr. Chad Mather.

The Fayetteville, N.C., native was a co-captain for the Blue Devils in 2021-22, helping lead the team to 32 wins, an ACC regular season championship and a Final Four appearance. Baker has played in 88 career games, shooting 41 percent from three-point range this season and 38 percent for his career.

Baker will begin rehabilitation and intends on playing for the Blue Devils in the 2022-23 season, which would be his additional year of eligibility granted by the NCAA due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
