Enes Kanter underwent successful surgery to repair a dislocated left shoulder, agent Max Ergul told The Salt Lake Tribune. Ergul said the surgery "went perfect," that Kanter was awake and watching a movie in his Chicago hotel room.

The Jazz announced Kanter's surgery Tuesday, hours before suffering a 90-80 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder that knocked them out of eighth in the Western Conference playoff chase. Ergul said Kanter will remain in Chicago for the forseeable future for rehab, which begins Friday.

He said he did not know when Kanter would return to Salt Lake City.

"He has no reason right now," Ergul said. "His medical staff is here, his rehab staff is here."

The Jazz have not announced a recovery timeline or if Kanter is likely to be healthy in time for the July summer league in Orlando, Fla. Kanter injured his shoulder on March 27 diving for a loose ball against Phoenix, and was helped off the floor with his shoulder noticeably out of place.
