New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - New Orleans Hornets rookie guard Austin Rivers underwent surgery Friday to clean out bone spurs in his right ankle.

The team said the injury flared up during the NBA Summer League last week in Las Vegas. He is expected to be ready for training camp this fall.

Rivers was selected with the 10th overall pick of this year's NBA Draft after one standout season at Duke. He averaged 15.5 points and became the third freshman in the storied program's history to lead the Blue Devils in scoring.
