Paul Konerko Injury: First Baseman Undergoes Minor Wrist Procedure, Hopes To Play Thursday

Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko is out for the second consecutive game tonight against the Toronto Blue Jays. Konerko said he hopes to play on Thursday, but noted he may have to undergo offseason surgery to remove a bone chip from his left wrist. Konerko also underwent a minor procedure to the wrist on Tuesday. The Chicago Tribune has details:

Konerko, 36, described a 20-minute procedure Tuesday night in which the fragment was flushed in an area away from a joint where he was feeling irritation. A mixture that was used to flush the fragment caused numbing of his wrist and later soreness that prevented him from playing Tuesday and Wednesday night against the Blue Jays.

Konerko is hitting .366 with 11 homers and 33 RBI this season for the White Sox.
