After a pair of seasons during which he eclipsed the seven-figure mark, Blake Adams seemed destined for big things in 2013.

It now appears those big things won’t happen anytime soon.

Adams will undergo surgery in Vail, Colo., on Tuesday morning to repair a torn labrum in his hip, while also removing bone spurs and a cyst.

Depending on whether surgery reveals a microfracture or not, Adams will be on crutches anywhere from two-to-eight weeks.

While the exact amount of time he’ll miss remains unknown, Adams’ representative, Alan Bullington of 1 Degree Sports Management, said it could be a significant portion of time and he may not return until the 2013-14 season begins in October.

Adams’ surgery will be performed by Marc J. Philippon, who has previously done hip surgery on Brandt Snedeker and Major League baseball player Alex Rodriguez.
