While it’s unclear what prompted the hip surgery, earlier this year Sandler spoke out about an injury that caused movement problems.
In June, Sandler said Entertainment tonight that he sustained an injury while filming the basketball drama, Acceleratesin which he portrays a scout for the Philadelphia 76ers who dreams of being a coach in the NBA.
While filming the Netflix movie, the actor said he often played basketball with his NBA teammates before accidentally hurting his thigh.
“We’ve had some of that, but that’s before I put my thigh in,” he told outlets. “There was one night my thighs couldn’t stand it anymore, and then I said, ‘I think I’ll watch these guys go.'”
Sandler admitted that the injury was “too bad” and noted that “it’s already been a year and I’m still lame like an asshole… It’s awful.”
