Michigan point guard Spike Albrecht underwent his second hip surgery on Wednesday, according to MLive.com.

Neither procedure was a surprise, as Albrecht battles a degenerative hip condition that he was forced to play through during the 2014-15 season.

“This is something I knew I would have to do and now is the right time,” Albrecht said in a released statement after his first surgery. “I am so appreciative of all the support I have received from the U-M medical doctors and staff, the U-M coaching staff, my teammates and especially all the Wolverine fans. I cannot wait to get back to the floor playing pain free.”

Albrecht, who averaged 34.7 minutes in Big Ten play after Caris LeVert and Derrick Walton got injured, is expected to be out for 4-to-5 months.
