Jeronne Maymon due back in August
School officials said Maymon, a second-team All-Southeastern Conference selection as a junior, should be cleared to play in time for Tennessee's exhibition tour of Italy in August.
Maymon had recent swelling, prompting Friday's surgery.
Maymon averaged 12.7 points and a team-high 8.1 rebounds last season.
