Carlton forward Alex Fasolo looks set to miss the start of the AFL season following an off-field incident in Melbourne.
Fasolo, who is yet to play for the Blues having joined from Collingwood in October, underwent surgery after sustaining a fractured left wrist on Saturday night.
Carlton released news of the Fasolo’s injury late on Sunday evening, and in a statement said the 26-year-old immediately notified club officials before going under the knife at the Epworth hospital.
Fasolo’s recovery period is expected to be between six to eight weeks with Carlton kicking of their 2019 season against Richmond on Thursday March 21.
Meanwhile, Porrt Adelaide midfielder Ollie Wines is nursing a shoulder injury he suffered while water skiing on Saturday afternoon.
Wines will have his shoulder scanned later this week to determine the extent of injury.
